The second millennium of mankind has been characterized by almost incessant warfare somewhere on the face of the globe. The Killing Game serves as a snapshot of the development of warfare over the past 1,000 years, illustrating the bravery and suffering mankind has inflicted upon itself in developing what we call the `Art of War'.
Here military historian Anthony Tucker-Jones selects twenty battles that illustrate the changing face of warfare over the past thousand years - from the Viking shield wall to long bows and knights, the emergence of gunpowder and finally the long-range faceless warfare of today. This is a look at the killing game and its devastating impact.
ANTHONY TUCKER-JONES spent nearly 20 years in the British Intelligence community before establishing himself as a defence writer and military historian. He has written extensively on aspects of warfare in the Second World War, including Hitler's Great Panzer Heist and Stalin's Revenge: Operation Bagration. He has also written Slaughter on the Eastern Front for The History Press (2017). www.atuckerjones.com
