This book is written for boys aged 8 to 80.
A set of wonderful pictures show exactly what a warriors and weapons looks like and all boys seem to just love to look them. It is like a picture dictionary of weapons and soldiers. The pictures are accurate; the colors are nice; the text is clear enough.
The book introduces us to war, weapons and soldiers from the Stone Age to the 21st century, from the stone ax to the space technology.
History loves jokes. Its irony always follows one and the same pattern:
"Nothing new under the sun."
The funny thing is that the people do not understand it.
From the first sharp stone in the hand of Pithecanthropus to Stealth bombers the nature of war remains the same.
