I bought this book for my 9 year old son. He said it was really interesting and made you want to read the whole book.

This is a wonderful book. It explains succintly and clearly the causes and events of major battles you have always heard about and didn't know details of. Its small sections, diagrams, and boxes make it easy to go through in small parts and get the essentials.
