A great collection of essays about 100 conflicts that changed the world. It can be monotonous at times like most non-fiction books, but it is a great source of information. Some conflicts mentioned involve Julius Caesar and Alexander the Great of the Ancient World. More recent wars such as World War II and the War on Terror are reflected on too. ( )
