Eyewitness Books (or Eyewitness Guides) is a series of nonfiction books intended for children and young adults. They were first published in England by Dorling Kindersley in 1988. The series now has over one hundred titles on a variety of subjects, such as dinosaurs, Ancient Egypt, flags, chemistry, music, the solar system, film, and William Shakespeare.

Seeing Wellington as a remarkable figure, Holmes follows his career from the ruins of his family seat in Ireland to the plains of India where Wellesley first gained his reputation as a brilliant commander, to the horrors of the Peninsular War and Waterloo. Shelley: The Pursuit is the book with which Richard Holmes-the finest literary biographer of our day-made his name.

Why should a reader acquire "Battle (DK Eyewitness)"?

1. Because it is a DK Eyewitness book! That's reason enough. As a reviewer for the New York Times once wrote: "A DK book is a mini-museum." This time the "museum" reveals "battle" and its various forms through the ages in the Western world (Europe and America, but here mostly Europe). Notes about Asia and Africa are sprinkled throughout the book, but the predominant information is Euro-centric.

2. The minute detail of battle is visited in tactical order from the big picture to the most detailed aspect of war. For example the first pages picture art relics showing aspects of war: Greek Hoplite soldiers dressing for battle, Cypriot soldiers in spear-at-the-ready pose, Egyptians in war chariots.

3. After defining battle, the book goes on to present two-page and sometimes four-page spreads on various components needed to have battle: Infantry of the line, Heavy cavalry, Weapons training, Badges of rank, Colors, Supply and transportation, A soldier's pack, Reconnaissance, Field guns, Rapid-fire weapons, High-angle fire, Artillery instruments, Bows and arrows, Swords, Firearms, Close combat, and so on.

4. Ending with Rewards of battle, Sick and wounded, Memories of war,

5. Concluding with World War II, Vietnam, and Resources and websites for more information.

6. DK books always includes a glossary and and Index.

7. Since this is a new DK book, a clip-art CD of Battle and an 18 x 24 inch, pull-out poster highlighting key components of the book are included.

For those unfamiliar with DK books, each page is packed with equal amounts of pictures, illustrations, maps, displays and then words. Each page is a feast for both eye and brain, visual and mental stimulation, whatever the subject.

For the dabbler in aspects of war, this book is a no-brainer!

My son is really loving the DK books right now. He's always been a huge battle fan, watching Patton when he was only 3 years old should have told us how he'd become later on. These books have a great poster inside, usually come with a CD, and lots of information to learn. Love these books!

As with all the eyewitness books its a great factual book for children to learn. The book is full of many pictures each with annotations describing in simple detail what is going on in the picture. The books are full of knowledge and enjoyable for both children and adults alike!
I recommened buying this book for your child if they are wanting to learn about battle.

Another solid DK book on a topic that interests many students in 5th and 6th grade. Battle, Knight, Pirate, World War II, etc. are all high-interest books and read often by my students.
