Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"Like its mates in the Everything series, this browser-friendly title fills up single-topic spreads (here battles) with a colorful mix of historical images, period photos, and pictures of costumed reenactors accompanied by breezy commentar." —Booklist

"There are fantastic pictures throughout, and every single page is packed with facts and historical tidbits; the information in here covers battles the world over, too, not just ones out of American history." —San Francisco Book Review
