Soldiers: Great Stories Of War And Peace
by Max Hastings
- Soldier's Stories, General Interest
Powerful stories of war and warriors
Soldiers is a very personal gathering of gripping tales by many writers, about men and women who have borne arms. The nearly 350 stories illustrate vividly what it is like to fight in wars, to live and die as a warrior, from Greek and Roman times through to recent conflicts in Iraq and Afghanistan.
Here you will meet Jewish heroes of the Bible, Rome’s captain of the gate, Queen Boudicca, Joan of Arc, Cromwell, Wellington, Napoleon’s marshals, Ulysses S. Grant, George S. Patton and many more.
These stories reflect a change of mood towards war through the ages. Though nations continue to inflict terrible violence upon each other, most of humankind has retreated from the old notion of war as a sport, to acknowledge it as the supreme tragedy.
