Synopses & Reviews
William Gilkerson takes the broad, sweeping history of the human race and puts it in story and pictures that are at once meaningful, sometimes profound, and always funny. His pen takes us from cave men with rocks, to modern bombs and rockets, and depicts the chaos throughout. First published in 1963, we are delighted to bring this amusing and glorious look at arms and armies through the ages to a new audience. There are laughs on every page, but also wry, though provoking observations, all expressed through Gilkersons wonderfully detailed drawings which will enthrall readers of all ages. A book to read and enjoy, and then share with friends.
