Publisher Comments:

The author explores in detail the history of mounted warfare which in reality is a history of war itself. For over 3,000 years the mounted warrior was a dominant figure, mobility and speed of the horse were invaluable, and the charge itself often the defining moment of any battle. The author has gone to great lengths to make this a highly readable, well researched, beautifully illustrated history. This book will delight everyone interested in military history and those who are thrilled by the special 'romance' of the horse in warfare.

Book News Annotation:

Ellis, a military historian, provides this reprint from 1978 that details the history of mounted warfare from early civilization up to 1945, including the different ways horses were used, such as in combat, to charge, or as a shock weapon. B&w photos and illustrations are incorporated throughout. He discusses war tactics, weapons, and battles in chapters covering Rome, Europe, the Americas, countries outside of Europe, and other topics. Distributed by Casemate.
