Some brief overview of this book

Now available in a revised and updated version, The Cambridge Illustrated History of Warfare provides a unique account of Western warfare from antiquity to the present day. The book treats the history of all aspects of the subject: the development of warfare on land, sea and air; weapons and technology; strategy and defense; discipline and intelligence; mercenaries and standing armies; cavalry and infantry; chivalry and Blitzkrieg; guerilla assault and nuclear arsenals. It places in context particular key events in the history of armed engagement, from the Greek victory at Marathon, through the introduction of gunpowder in medieval England and France, to the jungle warfare of Vietnam and the strategic air attacks of the Gulf War. Throughout, there is an emphasis on the socio-economic aspects of military progress: who pays for it, how can its returns be measured, and to what extent does it explain the rise of the West to global dominance over two millennia?

The combined effort of seven leading experts, this book treats the history of all aspects of the subject of warfare, from its development on land, sea, and in the air to weapons and technology and stategy and defense, from discipline and intelligence to mercenaries, standing armies, cavalry and infantry, from guerilla assault to nuclear warfare. 200 color plates. 100 halftone illustrations. 31 line drawings. 28 maps.
