Inhaltsangabe: Featuring an extra-sturdy library binding!
Here is an exciting and informative guide to the most important battles in history. Superb color photographs of uniforms, weapons, and battle scenes give the reader a unique "eyewitness" view of how battles were fought and won. See an Indian five-bladed dagger, a full Japanese suit of armor, medals from all over the world, a "dragon cannon" and a surgeon's amputation saw. Learn about the difference between a cannon and a mortar, how balloons were used for reconnaissance, how rifles sent bullets farther and faster and how the Red Cross was set up. Discover how the rifle changed warfare, why soldiers changed to khaki uniforms, what a sabretache contained, how a cannon was fired and why colors were so important, and much, much more!
Inhaltsangabe: Photographed in full color. Discover the stories behind the most compelling skirmishes in history: how Alexander the Great was the first general to hire spies; how Napoleon's "shock" tactics won him an empire; and how the telegraph changed the course of the Civil War.
