Thanks to their great strength and stamina, Dwarves march to battle in thick armor and carrying numerous heavy weapons.

From an initial examination of the fighting methods of the individual dwarf soldier, it expands to look at how they do battle in small companies and vast armies.

Also examined are their tactics in specific situations such as underground fighting 
    and combat in mountainous terrain. Finally, the book examines a few specific battles in great detail in order to fully demonstrate the dwarven way of war.
