Discover the history of warfare -- from the hand-to-hand combat of the ancients to the artillery battles of World War I.

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!
