To defeat your enemy, you must understand him. This volume offers an analysis of the most loathsome and fearsome foe of the living--the undead. Created from corpses and trapped souls, the undead are anathema to all life. Beginning with an examination of the wide variety of undead types--both corporeal creatures such as zombies, skeletons, and ghouls, and ethereal forms such as wraiths, wights, and ghosts--this book explores how these types do battle individually, in small warbands, and in vast armies.
It also covers the powerful undead types such as vampires and liches that often lead these armies, exploring their strengths, their motivations, and the horrible death magic that they can bring to the battlefield. Presented with a wide variety of illustrations, this book is an indispensable guide to taking on the forces of unlife.
