The Face of Battle is military history from the battlefield: an imperishable account of the direct experience of individuals at 'the point of maximum danger'.

It examines the physical conditions of fighting, the particular emotions and behaviour generated by battle, as well as the motives that impel soldiers to stand and fight rather than run away.

In this stunningly vivid reassessment of three battles, John Keegan conveys their reality for the participants, whether facing the arrow cloud of Agincourt, the levelled muskets of Waterloo or the steel rain of the Somme.

MEDIA REVIEWS

The book which changed how military history is written. Keegan set out to discover what it must have been like to be present at Agincourt, Waterloo and the Somme - and he succeeded brilliantly. - Bernard Cornwell (Chosen as number one of his six best books), Daily Express

This without any doubt is one of the half-dozen best books on warfare to appear in the English language since the end of the Second World War. - Michael Howard, Sunday Times

In this book, which is so creative, so original, one learns as much about the nature of man as of battle. - J. H. Plumb, New York Times Book Review
