Riassunto: This is a soldier's life, on and off the battlefield, in a new compact format. From the Samurai of Japan to US riflemen, explore the dramatic experiences of soldiers who've fought battles and paid the price of warfare. This book lets you experience life on the front line through personal accounts of the training, living conditions and engagements from 2,500 years of military history. Learn about fighting techniques and tactics from each era, and see the armor, uniforms, kit and weapons used in the field. Virtual tours take you inside the fortresses, ships, tanks and aircraft in which soldiers have battled, from a Viking long ship to the cockpit of a B17 bomber. The Foreword is from Colonel Tim Collins (OBE), who made headlines with his inspirational 'Eve-of-Battle' speech during the Iraqi conflict. This is an essential visual record of the fighting man.
L'autore: Reg Grant has written on the American Revolution, World War I and World War II, and is the author of DK's Battle and Flight: 100 years of aviation. He lives in South London.
