Courier Corporation, 1 janv. 1985 - 533 pages
Megiddo, Thermopylae, Waterloo, Stalingrad, Vietnam...nothing has dominated man's attention, challenged his energy, produced more heroes - and destruction - than war. This monumental one-volume work traces the long history of that uniquely human activity in vivid, accurate accounts of over 1,500 crucial military conflicts. Spanning more than 3,400 years, it encompasses a panorama of warfare so complete that no single volume like it exists.
