It seems strange. I just did a "git checkout field-ode" and "git log"
and the list did go past the branch creation.

What I usually do for looking in large history with several branches
at once is "git log -30 --branches --oneline --decorate --graph",
of course any number of commits other than 30 can be used.

For any git command, like log, you can display its documentation
by adding a "--help" *after* the command name, as in "git log --help".
