Publisher Comments:

More than 50 superb works of art, the product not only of the artist's skill but of thorough historical research

Victor Ambrus has illustrated many books on classical and historical subjects in his own recognizable style, and over the years has amassed what amounts to a visual record of the history of warfare, brought together here in this book. Beginning with the siege of Troy, the many scenes in this artistic history of battle include Caesar's invasion of Britain, the Viking raid on Lindisfarne, Hastings, the Harrowing of the North, the Battle of Sedgemoor, Marlborough during the Seven Years War, the storming of the Bastille, Trafalgar, Waterloo, the Franco-Prussian War, the BEF in World War I, the Normandy Landings, and the 1956 Hungarian uprising. With concise text explaining the background to each battle panorama, this collection is a joy to browse and will win a place on the shelves of all those with an interest in military history.

About the Author

Victor Ambrus has won the prestigious Greenaway Gold Medal for Illustration twice, and the Royal Academy Drawing Prize. He is the author of Drawing AnimalsDrawing on Archaeology, and How to Draw the Human Figure, and is the BBC Time Team artist.
