1 Review
This three-volume A-to-Z survey spans the recorded history of land warfare around the globe - from the biblical Battle of Jericho to the Russo-Chechen conflict. It not only records the art and science of war as it has been practiced through the ages, but also presents major leaders, planners, generals, heroes and innovators. It tells how war has influenced society, how social constructs have shaped war, how legends were born and how mind-boggling military blunders came about. It includes over 1300 entries, and has coverage not just of military subjects, but also examines related topics such as psychological and economic warfare, women at war, technology and war in literature.
