In his own words, the author attempts to provide “a sketch of its progress [the history of warfare], outlined in popular and untechnical language, and illustrated by a series of episodes in that history, intended to show what the fighting on the battlefield was like at various periods.” Progressing from the phalanx of the Greeks to the tortoise of the Roman Legions, the evolution of tactics are charted and discussed; the instruments of war are described in great detail, from the pikes of the Swiss to the rifles and cannons of the Boer War. Passing through such great battles as the Issus, Cannae, Zama, Crecy, Rossbach, Austerlitz, Waterloo, Sadowa and Sedan, the author brings his extensive knowledge to bear. A gripping account of many of the pivotal battles of European history." Illustrated with maps, plans, plates, etc. Internally tight & unmarked.
