From Rocks To Rockets: Hilarious cartoons depicting the history of war

From Rocks to Rockets Arms and Armies through the Ages was written and illustrated by my dad William Gilkerson back in 1963. The story book has now been re-released by Osprey Publishing in many countries including Canada, The US and The United Kingdom.  My father was always a bit of a war history nerd and he always liked to draw old tanks, ships and lots of explosions.

Not much has changed…War is still popular and my dad still likes to paint and practice a little bit of safe shooting fun involving just a slight of gun powder.

I thought this book would be great to introduce to ele-readers as it’s message is a simple one that I think we all can relate with.

With order there is always chaos…
