Editorial Reviews

Review

''The most brilliant evocation of military experience in our time.'' --C. P. Snow, New York Times bestselling author

''In this book, which is so creative, so original, one learns as much about the nature of man as of battle.'' --New York Times Book Review

''A totally original and brilliant book.'' --New York Times Review of Books

''This without any doubt is one of the half-dozen best books on warfare to appear in the English language since the end of the Second World War.'' --Sunday Times (London)

''This is no ordinary book of military history. In fact, it's considered a classic . . . [Simon Vance's] reading matches the grace, intelligence, and pathos of Keegan's prose . . . A flawless reading.'' --AudioFile
