The definitive history of warfare told by Britain's foremost military historian.

Stretching across centuries and continents, from the Empire of Babylon to the Somme, A History of Warfare studies civilisations, psychology, archaeology, genetics, history and strategy with an expert's eye.

John Keegan's unmissable and epic journey through military history has been widely acclaimed and remains vital reading today.
