War Chronicles by Joseph Cummins
Book DescriptionImportant and timely histories bring to life conflicts that educated readers have heard of but want to know more about. Each of the chapters covers a major war that had a profound effect on the way our civilisation was shaped. Veteran history author Joseph Cummins describes each conflict with gripping freshness and vitality that brings the time, people, and crises to life in a narrative history style.This book offers a rare look at multiple conflicts in an accessible, easy to digest format--not a look at war "for dummies," but a sophisticated narrative history that both history buffs and general readers will enjoy while they learn. Readers will have heard of most or all of the conflicts but will gain a greater depth of understanding through the many details, stories, and characters that illuminate the bigger meaning and consequences of these clashes.
