KIRKUS REVIEW

The author, whose 16 previous books present virtually every aspect of modern warfare, starts here with Caesar's invasion of Britain. The remaining chapters deal with sea-to-land assaults at Louisburg and Quebec, during the American Revolution; at Gallipoli and Zeebrugge in WW I; every major beachhead in all theaters of WW II; the Inchon landing of the Korean Police Action. Present-day American amphibious equipment and forces were seen first hand by the author off the island of Vieques in the Caribbean recently.
