The Killing GameThe Killing Game - A Thousand Years of Warfare in Twenty Battles

Author(s): Anthony Tucker-Jones

history

The second millennium of mankind has been characterized by almost incessant warfare somewhere on the face of the globe. This book serves as a snapshot of the development of warfare over the past 1,000 years, illustrating the bravery and suffering mankind has inflicted upon itself in developing what we call the "Art of War." Here military historian Anthony Tucker-Jones selects 20 battles that illustrate the changing face of warfare over the past thousand years-from the Viking shield wall to long bows and knights, the emergence of gunpowder, and finally the long-range faceless warfare of today. International in scope, it covers such well-known battles as Crecy (1346), Magdeburg (1631), Falkirk (1746), Isandlwana (1879), the Blitz (1940), Bekaa Valley (1982), Tora Bora (2001), and more.
