Reviews

This splendid romp through the history of warfare can be recommended as both fun and thought-provoking -- Military Times "In A History of the Word in 100 Weapons, author and military historian Chris McNab leads readers on a thrilling (albeit gut-wrenching) trail up the Mountain of Warfare... Facets of long-unused forging methods are brought back to life in a way that could even distract middle-schoolers away from their smartphones, for each weapon's tale is related much in the fashion of sitting at one's grandfather's knee, listening to dark tales of the trenches (sans embellishment)." --Meredith Greene, San Francisco Book Review "The fascination of of [this book] lies in how human ingenuity has learned from past achievements going back centuries to deliver destructive power ever more efficiently. This enlightening book, cleverly focused on just 100 weapons, is able to provide full detail, offering a clear and vivid history." --www.SirReadaLot.org (May 2011) "A very engrossing read ... I give this book my highest recommendation." --Ken McDevitt, IPMS/USA "Any serious military strategy collection must have this [book]." --The Midwest Book Review (August 2011) "McNab delivers both an engaging and easy read for anyone interested in military history." --Rachel E. Veres, www.cybermodeler.com
