    In this major and wholly original contribution to military history, John Keegan reverses the usual convention of writing about war in terms of generals and nations in conflict, which tends to leave the common soldier as cipher. Instead, he focuses on what a set battle is like for the man in the thick of it.

    Ryan says: "Worthwhile for history buffs"
    "It should be called *the face of "British" battle*"

    Story
    Would you consider the audio edition of The Face of Battle to be better than the print version?

    Did not read the book.


    What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

    He is writing this aimed at other war historians. So it can get a bit annoying.


    What does Simon Vance bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Simon Vance is the man.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    No, some of it was good, the first and last chapter are too long. The rest is good.
