Enhanced descriptions from Syndetics:

"Throughout ... history the individual soldier's life has been governed by the answers to such key questions as: How is he recruited and trained? What will he eat? How fast and far can he travel in a day? What uniform will he wear? How will he be armed? What will he do in his off-duty hours? Where will he sleep and shelter? What happens when he is wounded? The answers to these and numerous other questions reveal continuity and change across the centuries."--Book jacket.
