Description
Ranging from 8th-century BC Israel to late-20th-century Yugoslavia, these 50 capsule biographies of soldiers feature background information on the various conflicts, quotes from primary sources, and 16 pages of illustrations. Legends like Ulysses S. Grant and Black Hawk appear here, but also everyday soldiers whose experiences were too important to leave unrecorded, including Aristodemus, one of just two Spartans to survive Thermopylae; a veteran of Napoleon's disastrous Russian campaign; and two adolescents who took part in the 19801988 war between Iran and Iraq.
