This is a great book. It consists of numerous essays on various aspects of archaeology relating to war. There are 44 individual articles, examples of which are:

- Life and Death in a Maya War Zone (The remains of a slaughtered royal family)

- Was there a Trojan War? (Archaeology from the search for Troy)

- Chinese Chimes and Chariots (Chinese burials)

- Digging Napoleon's Dead (A mass grave in Lithuania)

- Doing Time (How Confederate soldiers weathered captivity in the American Civil War)

- Diving at Ground Zero (The ships of Bikini Atoll)

The articles average 5 - 8 pages and are well written with black and white photos and maps. There are section of colored photos in the middle of the book. This book gives a great overview of archeology and how it pertains to warfare. It also is a great source because there is a section listing books for further reading on all the subjects.

This book was well worth the price. I just wish it had more color photos.
