    I've read it, but it was quite a while ago so my recollection is somewhat blurred. On Mount Tobereadagain! Overall I have enjoyed all of Keegan's books.

    This contains in-depth studies of several major battles - Waterloo, the Somme, Agincourt. John Keegan is a great historian, of course, but in this book he also details the human aspect of these battle. There's the exhaustion of the soldiers, the details of the terrain, the weapons; it's great stuff.
