Edited by Geoffrey Parker. Hardback, published by B C A by arrangement with the Cambridge University Press. 1993. Pre-loved. Very good condition.
From the Greek victory at Marathon to the Gulf War, the Cambridge Illustrated History of Warfare places in context the key events in the history of armed engagement. All aspects of war on land, sea and in the air are cover: weapons and technology strategy and defence; discipline and intelligence; mercenaries and standing armies; cavalry and infantry; chivalry and Blitzkrieg, guerilla assault and nuclear arsenals. The books asks when war became global in the modern sense, addresses the effect that war has on societies, and emphasises where war fits on the political and economic agenda.
Readable, highly illustrated (with pictures, maps and diagrams) and authoritative, the Cambridge Illustrated History of Warfare presents a comprehensive picture of the most horribly destructive and yet most organised and co-ordinated of human activities: war.
