About the Book:

Mankind is not a peaceful species. Throughout human history violent conflict has been central to our way of life. Somewhere, somehow, and at some time or other, some form of conflict is taking place, whether on a small or a large scale. Many have sought to attribute this to a weakness of human nature, arguing that we are intrinsically violent animals, while others have explained warfare as an inevitable consequence of the emergence of organized societies and civilizations. Whatever the reasons, it is clear that in order to have a true understanding of our history, we must have a knowledge of war.

With its in-depth look at the part war has played in our history, The Encyclopedia of Warfare gives you that knowledge. Written by a team of eminent military historians, it covers all the significant armed conflicts from 1481BC right up to the present day.
