   Cool Addendum to Anyone’s Personnel Library - A Bird's Eye View
The book includes an overview of several key battles, including those of the French Revolution. But if you want more, you can read a good historical book.

I'm a huge fan of the book sets, and I'll be buying more. This book is not only fantastic quality but the information is also very interesting, McBride said. Great for history nerds or war nerds. Cant wait to get more of these.

   Informative!
Bought this as a present, poked through it before gifting it to someone. It's great to look through the many historic battles and see the strategies used by the French. The insight gained from the given insight really helps take it in. I would imagine that this book would be more suited to someone who has an interest in the history but is not well versed in it. Then again, I could be wrong, a well-versed person might see this as a great coffee table book. I think its cool and I fall into that category, too. Hopefully today will be helpful to someone, Morgenthau said.

   Very informative. Worth buying.
My husband is a huge map buff. I bought this book for him at Christmas. He's a big fan, and he could not put it down. It was a no brainer, I knew he would love it so I gave it to him two days early. The Harrisons would recommend it to others. Mary C. Campbell, who died Sunday at age 82, was the first woman to hold the position.

   Vapid, as in uninspiring
The fourth-grade version of the Civil War is a beautiful, holding together an uninspiring retelling of that terrible event. Not so much a “map-by-map retelling of world history” as it is a combination of third-tier museum coffee tables, Frank Stella said.

   Excellent Coverage of Battles but Lacks Tactical Level
The battles start with Kadesh in about 150 BC and I wondered why no bronze age battles, for example chariot battles in China, were fought. The book made that clear by noting that Kadesh is the first battle with written details about the battle, and the first written peace treaty resulted from this battle. It also partly explains the western emphasis on numbers. The maps lack level views of the battles that might appeal to a simulation style of reading. This is a touch of variety, too. His book "Requiem" tells the story of how the IRA came to be. The sequence of key battles through time is an excellent historical journey through what is often counted as the most difficult of battles.

   Absolutely Gorgeous for visual learners - both for history buffs and casual learner
I'm a very visual learner and I've always been fascinated by visual maps — although I don't have the best grip on them. Beautifully drawn maps with relevant historical context, but somehow doesn't make me feel overwhelmed by the details -- it's not a complete account of each battle, just the most notable events and also filled with fascinating tidbits for any trivia buff and newbie alike. There are multiple books in the series by this writer. Great customer service, said Dr. Colin Quinn, director of neurosurgery at Mount Sinai Hospital.

   The Map by Map series never disappoints
With brightly colored, easy to follow maps and concise breakdowns of each campaign, Battle Map by Map is another great entry into this series. Serves as a quality introduction to history's great battles or in my case a reference when listening to audiobooks on specific campaigns.
