KIRKUS REVIEW

The author has selected battles from Custer's Last Stand through the Korean War with special emphasis on the battles of World War II. Each account is graphically described and illustrated with drawings by Grace Huxtable. Here are stories of the last real cavalry charge in the Battle of Omdurman in 1898, of the first apparition-like appearance of tanks during World War I, of the Canadian Army's attack in Normandy, a battle observed by the author, and of the storming of Iwo Jima. Horrendous moments among men, these are nevertheless ""great"" moments in battle.
