Perhaps that explains why this book on the history of the greatest wars we have seen, told in chronological order beginning with the Greek-Persian wars , is so fascinating and enthralling. It is not a book for serious students of history, but it has enough information for any reader to be very well informed on the subject of major wars.
The major battles in each war, for example, the Battle of Thermopylae the story of the Spartans were told in exciting, almost fiction-like manner. By dint of that, it was clear that the author brought his bias and prejudice into the open; that was one way of making history exciting. The stories were all accompanied by pictures, mostly coloured paintings depicting the battles.
The Battle of Poitiers was depicted by a Charles Auguste painting. The maps were clear and colourful, and the photographs that were used in parts of the book were mostly in black and white and decidedly grim and gripping. It would have been a 4 star book if the author or someone else had proof read and fact checked it first.
