SECRETS OF WARFARE
Exposing the Myths and Hidden History of Weapons and Battles
William Weir

You've already heard about the first American Civil War battle between the ironclad warships the Monitor and the Merrimac and about why Custer's last stand was, well, his last, but have you heard about the incredibly fast and manoeuvrable airship Dr. Solomon Andrews, which was offered to the government during the American Civil War?

SECRETS OF WARFARE exposes many of the myths that have kept the public misinformed about warfare, the most dangerous of all human activities. Some myths are the result of deliberate misrepresentation; others, the result of ignorance or bigotry. In any case, there is no substitute for the truth.

SECRETS OF WARFARE explores:

· Battles from the ancient world
· The alleged superiority of Western nations from the earliest times
· The famed myth of the English Longbow
· The introduction of submarines to warfare prior to World War I
· The deadliest American air raids of World War II
· The supposed “attack” on U.S. destroyers in the Gulf of Tonkine
