The Chronicle of War

Front Cover
Carlton Books, Limited, 2007 - History - 400 pages
The Chronicle of War covers all the major wars and many minor ones, documenting over 150 years of international history. Apart from the major world wars, the events covered include the Sino-French war of the 1880s, which launched the historical sequence of events that culminated in seeing American troops fighting in Vietnam, the Spanish-American War of 1898 and the subsequent American occupation of the Phillippines, the British "air war" in Iraq during the 1920s, the Spanish Civil War, Cold War events such as the Cuban Missile Crisis, the experience of the Multi-National Force in war-torn Lebanon during the early 1980s, the Kosovo War that saw a European state defeated without a single casualty to the NATO alliance which fought the war entirely with aircraft, and the invasion of Iraq in 2003. The Chronicle of War will appeal to both the military enthusiast and to the casual reader looking for a comprehensive yet dramatic description of the events of military history.
