Some depictions of human conflict acquire such a charm over centuries, we half forget we are seeing a bloodbath. Others have an enduring power to appal. Recent documentary photographs strike a chill. This lavishly illustrated chronicle of warfare explores epic battles that turned the historic tide - from Manzikert to Marston Moor to the Middle East - while reminding us that nothing really changes. ― Saga Magazine --This text refers to the hardcover edition.
