Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "Like its mates in the Everything series, this browser-friendly title fills up single-topic spreads (here battles) with a colorful mix of historical images, period photos, and pictures of costumed reenactors accompanied by breezy commentary: The samurai were stylin'. Considering the vast scope of the subject soldiers, armies, and weaponry through history; land, sea, and air battles; strategy and tactics; spies; modern gadgetry; and more the details are sparse but rarely simplistic. Sometimes the text is confusing: carping critics might note that George Custer is dubbed an excellent and lousy leader in the same paragraph. Sidebars from war correspondent Mark Bauman, an entire final section of painless tests and quizzes, and back matter that includes strategy games as well as print and web resources enhance the appeal.--Peters, John Copyright 2010 Booklist"
