Soul of the sword : an illustrated history of weaponry and warfare from prehistory to the present by Robert L O'Connell( Book )

1 edition published in 2002 in English and held by 821 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"It is axiomatic to say that war has driven and shaped human history. Yet a corollary to this truth is far less well understood: weapons have driven and shaped war. Major conflicts have turned on the success or failure of the weapons involved, and entire strategies have been created around the existence of key weapons. Putting the corollary together with the axiom, weapons reflect better than almost anything else the changes, fears, and desires of man and society." "In Soul of the Sword, a noted military historian and senior intelligence analyst at the National Ground Intelligence Center, Robert O'Connell, offers a history of weapons from the primitive mace to the nuclear warhead. Throughout he focuses on their impact on the course of warfare and on society. O'Connell's narrative is accompanied by illustrations by John Batchelor, the world's premier military illustrator, covering everything from the first Western gun to the Mosquito bomber."--Jacket

The fighting ship by Bernard Brett( Book )

1 edition published in 1985 in English and held by 226 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

How have sea battles been fought throughout the centuries, where and by whom, and why? From 480 B.C., when the Greeks fought the Persians at the Battle of Salamis, to the saga of the Falklands in 1982, The Fighting Ship, with its superbly imaginative text and detailed illustrations, answers these questions and many more. In the main part of the book crucial sea engagements are described through the eyes of one of the combatants -- we read, for example, of the paymaster on board the USS Monitor in 1862, on her way to do battle with the CSS Merrimack in Chesapeake Bay and a young sailor's experience of the Spanish Armada . Shorter entries on subjects like navigation, aircraft at sea and surgery at sea, and descriptions of ships and weaponry give an added perspective
