Product Details


Man of War is an unexpected treat!  I was enamored of Charlie Schroeder’s travelogue through the subculture of reenactment and fascinated by his modern take on ancient warfare.  (Who knew the proper buttons were so important?)  They say war is Hell, yet this book is a heck of a lot of fun.”

—Jen Lancaster, bestsellling author of Jeneration X

“Charlie Schroeder has produced a rollicking good ride in this compulsively scintillating book. From first page to last, it is an often surprising delight.”

—Jay Winik, bestselling author of April 1865

“A hilarious romp through 3000 years of history, one forced march at a time.”

—J. Maarten Troost, author of The Sex Lives of Cannibals

“The wonderfully funny and humane Charlie Schroeder has served his country valiantly, and now we should all honor him by buying his book. The best way to spread the word? A period-authentic confetti cannon.”

—Henry Alford, author of Would It Kill You to Stop Doing That?

“An entertaining read. The companionable author’s gimlet eye rarely misses the absurd or touching incidents he encountered during his explorations.”

—Kirkus Reviews

“An offbeat, occasionally insightful and funny memoir”

—The Wall Street Journal
