Very Good

by ColinAMeredith on Dec 20, 2007

If you have read anything from John Keegan you know what an amazing historical writer he is. This book is no exception. It is packed with information, but it is more of an 'overview' of the entire war. Of course you can fit only so much info about a huge topic into one book. But it is a great starting point, and you can read other books about particular battles/offensive (for example 'Barborrsa'). I highly recommend this book. Colin
