Although the Japanese samurai prioritized agility over protection in contrast to the heavily armoured European knight, both warriors were motivated by honour and status, seeking combat with opponents of a similar caste. This book investigates how warfare has changed throughout history, how different weapons and different tactics have sealed the fate of soldiers of all ranks, from pre-history to the present day, as well as the psychological and cultural factors that have convinced them to fight and die.
