Reviews

Praise for the first volume of The War Chronicles: From Chariots to Flintlocks ..".Cummins offers short, chronological narratives of dozens of subjects, from the Greco-Persian Wars and King Leonidas through the American Revolution and Gentleman Johnny Burgoyne. Featuring strong color images, it is an easily navigated compilation with time lines and wide-ranging subpieces that add interest...it is also simply a fun book that you might pick up over and over to check your memory of, say, the Battle of Poltava." --Library Journal There is great narrative here--really great narrative history--but readers of military history will especially appreciate the book's unique format which spotlights the salient facts of each conflict. Chronology, Combatants, Commanders, Theater of War, Casualties, and Turning Point, which recounts in gripping detail the battle in which the war was lost or won. --Thomas J. Craughwell, author of The Second Largest Empire in the World, Failures of the Presidents, and Stealing Lincoln's Body "The second half of Joe Cummins's remarkable chronicle is as impressive as the first. Incorporating a staggering amount of research into a cleverly organized volume, he charts the evolution of modern war from the early modern era to our own. Fascinating and eminently accessible." --Cormac O'Brien, author of The Forgotten History of America and Secret Lives of the U.S. Presidents
