Worth every penny!

I just finished reading this book and I was very impressed with it. The authors are all accomplished military commanders and it shows in their writing and analysis of the topics they chose. What makes this book interesting is it is not a boring repeat of historical facts that can be found in any military history book. The different authors mix the "big picture" with many little pictures. They show the grunt's eye view of warfare and how they coped with being outnumbered and outgunned. Many unknown facts are peppered throughout the book such as the commander of the British forces heading to Gallipoli wore pajamas on the bridge of his ship and was equipped with only an old travel map of Turkey. Another author writes about one Israeli lieutenant took two tanks and held of masses of Syrian armor on the Golan heights even though he was wounded. About the only "flaw" in the book is there are very few maps in which to follow the action. Some maps are included, but they are not very helpful. Overall this book is outstanding and you will not waste your money by buying it.
