A History Of Warfare




'John Keegan is at once the most readable and the most original of living military historians-His book is a work of massive sweep-the most remarkable study of warfare that has yet been written.' Michael Howard, New York Times Review of Books

The author has been preparing to write this book during thirty years of reading, research, teaching and commenting on military affairs. It brings together in a single volume the themes explored in his earlier bestselling books and adds to them the insights gained in his visits to many of the world's major battlefields, a lifetime's friendship with soldiers of different armies and his more recent experience as a war correspondent in the Lebanon and the Gulf.
