Looking at the lives of more than 30 fighting men through the ages and around the world, this book illustrates their uniforms, weapons and equipment. It also offers answers to questions about recruitment, what happened if he was wounded, and why a soldier was prepared to give his life.
Focusing on real soldiers rather than stereotypes, this book looks at the lives of more than 30 fighting men through the ages, from a Chinese soldier in the "terracotta army" of the Emperor Quinshi Huangdi, a Crusader, an American Indian brave, a French Foreign Legionnaire and a British Tommy on the Western Front, to a Japanese kamikaze pilot of World War II. There is a colour photograph of each soldier's uniform, the weapons he used, and the equipment he carried in his kit-bag. Answers are offered to questions such as how the soldier was recruited, what happened if he was wounded, and why he was prepared to give his life.
