For millennia, war was viewed as a supreme test. In the period 1750-1850 war became much more than a test: it became a secular revelation. This new understanding of war as revelation completely transformed Western war culture, revolutionizing politics, the personal experience of war, the status of common soldiers, and the tenets of military theory.

MEDIA REVIEWS

'Like a good detective story, Harari presents us with facts and clues which seem to lead towards one conclusion, only to puncture our certainties. This is a book of exraordinary wit, erudition, and range.' - Professor Joanna Bourke, Birkbeck College, University of London
