Read full description of the books:



I was looking for a book that gave a broad view of military tactics across history, and this book delivered. The book's point of view is long (ancient Greeks up to 1973 Israeli war) and broad (battle tactics, troop movement, costs, logistics, technology). There are also lots of little fascinating tidbits to be found along the way that I never knew. For example, originally bayonets were mounted in the rifle barrel and it took about a decade before they moved to the outside of the barrel so the soldiers could keep shooting.


The main problem I had was that the structure is repetitive. Jones is trying to write about both tactics and history and often organizes chapters as: a preview of an era's tactics, a history of the era's battles with tactics, a review of the era's history with tactics, and then a summary of the era's tactics. I tried to do a lot of intelligent skimming, but could never be sure when some new interesting fact or insight might crop up in the middle of an otherwise repetitive section.
