9780140296556: The Book of War

Acclaimed military historian John Keegan s anthology of war writing from 25 centuries of battle
In The Book of War, John Keegan marshals a formidable host of war writings to chronicle the evolution of Western warfare through the voice of the most eloquent participants from Thucydides classic account of ancient Greek phalanx warfare to a blow-by-blow description of ground fighting against the Iraqi troops in Kuwait during the Gulf War. Keegan gathers more than eighty selections, including Caesar s Commentaries on the Roman invasion of Britain; the French Knight Jehan de Wavrin at the battle of Agincourt; Davy Crockett in the war against the Creek; Wellington s dispatch on Waterloo; Hemingway after Caporetto; and Ernie Pyle at Normandy.

Product Description:

Soldiers, poets, novelists & journalists have always endeavoured to commit to paper the experience of war. Whether it is being used to transmit myth, to glorify personal or tribal heroism, to fix a version of events or personal achievements, or merely to entertain, there can be no doubt that war makes magnificent literature. In this comprehensive anthology, Keegan reaps his material from the sweep of military history, from the Greek theoretical treatises on the art of warfare to the nineteenth-century novels which used war as a vehicle by which to shape their Romantic heroes, and the inspired journalistic reportage of the late 20th century.
