Soldier: A Visual History of the Fighting Man

    By

    Stand to attention with the inside story on the life of a soldier, from the Saracens to the SAS. From the Samurai of Japan to US rifleman, experience life on the frontline through personal accounts of the training, living conditions and engagements from 2,500 years of military history. This title helps you to learn about fighting techniques and tactics from each era and see the armour, uniforms, kit and weapons used in the field. It includes virtual tours that take you inside the fortresses, ships, tanks and aircraft in which soldiers have battled, from a Viking longship to the cockpit of a B17 bomber. It provides foreword from Colonel Tim Collins OBE, who made headlines with his inspirational 'Eve-of-Battle' speech during the Iraqi conflict. "Soldier" is an essential visual record of the fighting man.
