Product Description

Explore the lives and achievements of history's most important military figures with this illustrated guide to military men and women.
Featuring more than 100 key generals and military leaders from Alexander the Great to Winston Churchill, Masters of War takes you on a visual chronological journey of military history and the people behind the battles that have shaped it, starting in ancient Egypt and coming up to date with World War I, World War II, Vietnam War, and conflicts in the Middle East.
Profiles include Julius Caesar, Charlemagne, Genghis Khan, Oliver Cromwell, Napoleon, Horatio Nelson, Otto von Bismarck, Simon Bolivar, Ulysses Grant, Dwight D. Eisenhower, Douglas MacArthur, Mao Zedong, and many more. Biographies reveal the details of each leader's life and achievements, while paintings, photographs, and artefacts bring their stories to life.
The book also features the uniforms and equipment of soldiers throughout history. Each object is accompanied with a short description of its importance, from the swords and spears of early warfare to the guns and uniforms of the modern era.
