    Informal Review by J. King

    This is a very good book on the subject matter. The writing seems cumbersome at some places. This doesn't take away from the research effort at all. This book still stands as a very useful addition to the cluttered field of Military History.

    My only other warning is that the author seems to sometimes lean toward the popular view which is not always that probably view but rather the view that was once taken by the victor and then passed down throughout the ages.

    Nevertheless, the author gives us tons of color illustrations of armor, weaponary, navy seacraft, battle maneuvers, actual battle re-creations. The author provides thrilling descriptions of stategies, weather conditions, political alliances, and much more. I guess the only thing that I could ask for is whether the author intends to complete a similar work from a more modern military history perspective.

    Different than the other one. And yet......

    This book is NOT the illustrated encyclopedia with the same title. It is 99% text. There are no battle maps or drawings except for 8 pages that contain (in black and white) some of the colorful illustrations from the previous book with (again) the same title. This one just has a different sub-title.
