The sharp end : the fighting man in World War II by John Ellis( Book )

15 editions published between 1980 and 1982 in English and held by 826 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In any army, it is only a minority of men who end up as combat soldiers, at the "sharp end" where they have to shoot and be shot at, but it is their experiences that are the most intense and reveal most directly what war is actually like. John Ellis has drawn together the testimony of men who fought with the British, Commonwealth, and American armies in all theaters of World War II, from Western Europe to Burma and from North Africa to the Pacific. He uses these eyewitness accounts to explain how they were trained, the different landscapes and climates in which they fought, their attitudes and aspirations, how they relaxed when they were out of the line, and, above all, how they reacted to the experience of battle

Cavalry : the history of mounted warfare by John Ellis( Book )

16 editions published between 1978 and 2004 in English and Undetermined and held by 738 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The author explores in detail the history of mounted warfare which in reality is a history of war itself. For over 3,000 years the mounted warrior was a dominant figure, mobility and speed of the horse were invaluable, and the charge itself often the defining moment of any battle. The author has gone to great lengths to make this a highly readable, well researched, beautifully illustrated history. This book will delight everyone interested in military history and those who are thrilled by the special 'romance' of the horse in warfare."--Publisher's website
