    1. I was looking for a book that gave a broad view of military tactics across history, and this book delivered. The book's point of view is long (ancient Greeks up to 1973 Israeli war) and broad (battle tactics, troop movement, costs, logistics, technology). There are also lots of little fascinating tidbits to be found along the way that I never knew. For example, originally bayonets were mounted in the rifle barrel and it took about a decade before they moved to the outside of the barrel so the so [...]


    2. History of two and a half millennia of development of western art of war - obviously a monumental task and a book penned by acomplished historian attempting to tackle this topic must automatically rank very high in the reading list of any student of military history. My personal expectations for this book were very high indeed.

    3. I read this book a couple times in high school and it changed my life. I was always fascinated with history, in particular military history, and this book gave me my basis for my 4 year obsession with history during high school. More specific books were difficult for me to understand because they assumed I had the basis this book provided. If you want an introduction to military history this book cannot be beat.

Jones does seek, however, to try to squeeze every military time period into his four-part box schematic, which sometimes works, aometimes doesn't, especially as the later modern period is approached. Still, good for some one stop shopping for a basic survey.
