Publisher's Description

DK's Battle draws together, for the first time, the many facets of battle — the glory and the gore, the attrition and atrocity — in a new and original way. Organized chronologically, Battle provides a detailed overview of the conduct of warfare through the centuries, from the first recorded battle at Megiddo between the massed ranks of Hittites and Egyptians, to the war of the missing Weapons of Mass Destruction. In each era, the technology that transformed the battlefield and the tactics that won the day are explored and explained. Battle is an indispensable reference to this most fundamental part of the human story.

Editorial Reviews

"The comprehensive, busily illustrated Battle covers 5,000 years of combat in one volume, from the Old Kingdom of Egypt to recent conflicts in the Balkans and Chechnya. Although written for adults, these books would have thrilled me starting at about the age of 9." — William Grimes, The New York Times
