Most Helpful Customer Reviews

Format: Hardcover
If all history books had been written by Justin Pollard, then history would be the most popular subject in any school and at any level. I have read several of his books and I never cease to be mesmerized by his inimitable writing style: tongue-in-cheek, lively, captivating, often humorous and, amazingly, always factual. (Although it must be noted that some of his books are much more conventionally-written than others.)

In this book's 252 pages of main text, are 136 tales; thus each one is less than two pages in length. These are divided into fifteen sections, each with a particular theme. Although the stories are rather short, they are concise and to-the-point with no loss of any of the details that make them fascinating. As I'm sure I've mentioned in my prior reviews of this author's books, his choice of words in each case is prize-worthy and always a real treat.

I believe that this book is ideal for anyone wanting to see the lighter side of military history across the ages, and also for history enthusiasts who, like me, enjoy light-hearted slants to what was undoubtedly very serious business at the time.
