Cascoly Books - John Keegan

I first read Keegan's Face of Battle when it was published. His descriptions of the life of the man on the front lines was both shocking and compelling. Covering the battles of Agincourt, Waterloo and the Somme (they all took place within a short distance of each other), he describes the similarities and differences of war thru the ages. I've anxiously awaited each of his following books and have never been disappointed. In Price of Admiralty, he does for naval warfare what he did for the infantry in Face of Battle. Mask of Command studies great commanders throughout history (including Grant and Hitler with Wellington and Alexander begs to be debated and studied).

Intelligence in War his latest - examines the effects of intelligence on battles stretching from Nelson to the Gulf War
