This is a truly incredible collection of stories about the battles of war, both on the front lines and behind the scenes. The authors range from ancient scribes like Julius Caesar to more modern masters like Theodore Roosevelt and Stephen Crane—you’ll even find a story from the King James Bible to make this experience truly complete! These stories capture the dizzying variety of feelings and experiences that war inspires, from the devastating to the inspiring. They are thought-provoking, entertaining, and disturbing, but always compelling.

Whatever your feelings are about war, you’ll find that these stories will teach you something you didn't know about military history, stir up debate, and provoke conversation. This title is part of Skyhorse’s respected The Best Stories series, each of which is selectively edited and hand-crafted to include only the best stories from the best writers of the genre.

Stephen Brennan is an editor, teacher, and a New York Times bestselling author. He is the coauthor of The Adventurous Boy's Handbook and The Adventurous Girl's Handbook, and editor of The Best Pirate Stories Ever Told and The Best Sailing Stories Ever Told. He lives in New York.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from not so impressed Stephen Brennan has collected a number of *War Stories that leave one a bit staid. Apart from grammatical errors that seem to occur in every story, most of the chapters feel like they were copy and pasted from somewhere else. In addition i would say that his choice of best war stories is a bit biased. I am thinking that even for $6.00 on sale, I would have passed on this offering of history.
