Combat's innovative split-screen artwork showing a key moment in battle from both sides' perspective offers a glimpse of war through the eyes of those who fought, while first hand accounts, expert analysis, photographs, maps and specially commissioned colour plates combine to immerse you in the experience of close quarter battles.
