War Elephants is a must have for ancient warfare buffs looking for specific knowledge on the use of elephants. Wargamers who are playing games and enjoy crafting house rules will find War Elephants solid source material from which to tailor new flavors in their games.
Mike Dorn, The Wargamer (January 2009)
Konstantin's Nossov's War Elephants surveys the history of elephants used as weapons, tracing the history of war elephants from their deployment in ancient armies through their use in 19th century Asian conflicts. Military libraries will find it an interesting and wide-ranging survey.
The Bookwatch (February 2009)
In his book, author Nossov describes the background of the subject, their training and equipment as well as how they were used by various peoples. This is shown by period illustrations and artifacts left over from those times. It is further enhanced by the artwork of Peter Dennis, making for a well rounded publication and a book that I can easily recommend to you for something interesting and a bit more unusual from the norm.
