The Face Of Battle : A Study of Agincourt, Waterloo and the Somme, Paperback / softback Book

The Face Of Battle : A Study of Agincourt, Waterloo and the Somme Paperback / softback

Paperback / softback

Description

The Face of Battle is military history from the battlefield: an imperishable account of the direct experience of individuals at 'the point of maximum danger'. It examines the physical conditions of fighting, the particular emotions and behaviour generated by battle, as well as the motives that impel soldiers to stand and fight rather than run away. In this stunningly vivid reassessment of three battles, John Keegan conveys their reality for the participants, whether facing the arrow cloud of Agincourt, the levelled muskets of Waterloo or the steel rain of the Somme.
