From the Inside Flap:

Swarming has occurred throughout military history, and the lessons of this past experience may offer insights into a possible future application of swarming. This monograph analyzes ten swarming cases. The conclusions of this historical analysis are then applied to a discussion of future swarming.

Review:

A slim yet densely packed and insightful analysis of swarming as a military tactic, with a keen eye to its use in history... Swarming on the Battlefield is excellent, fascinating reading for historical recreationists, as well as students and non-specialist general readers with a keen interest in military science.
