A history of Western warfare from antiquity to the present in a social and global context.

Bloomsbury Review

The volume's thesis, controversial for some, claims that it is the West's peculiar form of waging war that has led it to dominate so much of the globe. As the various essays in the book outline the development of war in the West, they very ably support that central thesis copious illustrations—especially the battle plans and reconstructions will be welcome reading to anyone who wants a broad overview of warfare.
