Peter Snow and his wife Ann MacMillan have put together a fascinating collection of battlefield stories detailing ordinary men and women and their extraordinary lives when swept up in the turbulence of war. Great acts of heroism, human suffering and terror are described and illustrated in vivid detail. The stories span four centuries and four continents and cover a wide breadth of material from Waterloo to the Crimea from the World Wars to Syria. Told with narrative flair they are testimony to wartime experiences, some of which have been hitherto unrecorded.
