New book, some shelf wear to cover. 280 pages. It has been estimated that during WW1, 75,000 French soldiers were killed or wounded by 'friendly fire'. Even as recently as the 1991 Gulf War, 25% of all U.S. casualties were generated by other American Soldiers. Covering periods from Alexander the Great to the 20th Century, the author describes the incidents in detail and examines the causes behind them. Questions such as how did it happen, how widespread is it, and to what extent is it covered up are all answered.
