Charge! The Interesting Bits of Military History
Charge! is a miscellany of curious snippets of military history culled from Ancient Egypt to WWII. Most of the entries are short (usually two pages) and for the most part they are indeed interesting and amusing. However, at times I feel the author strains rather too hard to be amusing over incidents which are essentially tragic accidents. In war the boundary between farce and tragedy is narrow. Useful reading for quiz contestants.
