The Art of War is an authoritative account of the lives and careers of the greatest military commanders of the period 1500 BC ~ AD 1600, from Alcibiades to Attila, from Hannibal to Henry V, and from Trajan to Tamerlane. Each commander is profiled in a concise and informative 3000~word article which not only brings its subject vividly to life in a lively, fact~driven narrative, but also analyses and assesses his tactical and strategic gifts. These biographies are accompanied by ‘battle features’ or ‘campaign features’ ~ embellished by full~colour battle plans or campaign maps ~ focusing on the commanders’ greatest battlefield achievements. As accessible and informative as it is rigorous and scholarly.
