Passing of a Promotion Examination is an important milestones in the career of an Army Officer. Not only do they afford the achievement of a substantive rank, they also augment professional knowledge. History is most useful when it is studied in three dimensions: First, study in width: Observe how warfare has developed over a long historical period. Next, study in depth: Take one campaign or battle and examine it in minute detail. And lastly to study in context. Failure to study wars in context, leads to a superficial view of war with lessons and conclusions divorced from their proper context.

Time for study is always at a premium. There are far too many professional, social and domestic commitments that detract from an officer`s preparation schedule. The problem is even more acute while studying for Military History examination. The prescribed and recommended books are not always available in time and usually contain issues that are not relevant to the examination requirement.

To meet this need the author, in this publication, has distilled the essentials elements of the syllabus in one volume. It serves as an easy-to-read reference book, which is written in simple language and is accompanied by detailed maps.
