About

Overview

This comprehensive volume covers more than 2,500 years of world history, from when wars were fought with spears and axes to beyond the point in which nuclear weapons first threatened humankind with total annihilation. It features military leaders both good and evil who represent nations throughout the world and the most significant wars in history. Each entry includes information about childhood influences, education, career highlights, post-military life, and legacy as it relates to military history. Sun Tzu, Alexander the Great, Julius Caesar, Saladin, Genghis Khan, Robert E. Lee, Bernard Law Montgomery, and George Patton are some of the leaders examined.
