This book was written and is narrated well. Be prepared to learn everything from how a composite bow is made to how long cannons ruled the battlefield after the discovery of gunpowder.
However, this book is more than an explanaition of facts, and seeks to discuss the reasons behind historical warfare. The author has strong opinions on the motivations of armies and nations at war, and on the definition of war itself.
I reccomend A History of Warfare to anyone wishing to learn how warfare has grown over the centuries into what it is today and to anyone interested in the motives and situations that brought about many of the world-changing conflicts experienced throughout our history.
