There are better choices

There's really nothing much in this book that cannot be gained in Chris Peers' titles on Ancient and Imperial Chinese Armies for Osprey, which come with much better colour plates to boot. Better yet, read David A. Graff's "Medieval Chinese Warfare" and "A Military History of China" along with it. Peers, a popular historian, does make a good effort to liven up his prose, unlike Graff. But his reconstruction of events and battles sometimes borders on the sensationalistic. It would have been better if he had tried to be comprehensive, rather than basing his chapters on particularly exciting episodes a few centuries apart.
