Book Overview

Outstanding Compendium of Land Warfare

This is a great book for lovers of military history. As the title states, the focus is primarily on land warfare. The initial chapters document the beginnings of warfare from not only Western history, but also a fair amount of Eastern as well. Excellent analysis is done by David Chandler, who is peerless in the field. All types of strategy and tactics, from Sumerian phalanx, Mongol Horde recon in force, Gustavus Adolphus' mixed brigades, to French paradrops at Dien Bien Phu, are covered by Chandler. A multitude of photos, artwork (color & b/w), and numerous easily understood battle diagrams are included. Any amateur or professional in the field of warfare would be remiss to not include this book as part of his/her collection.
