British military historian John Keegan, the author of such groundbreaking works as The Face of Battle, addresses some fundamental questions about war: Is man innately violent? Are soldiers like other men? Is a disciplined army essential for a civilization’s success? With interludes on such topics as fortifications, weaponry, and logistics, and interesting perspectives on some of history’s great military leaders, Keegan’s study offers an expansive, panoramic view of warfare.
