9780002555463: The Century of Warfare: Worldwide Conflict from 1900 to the Present Day

Based on a TV series scheduled for spring 1995, this book provides a comprehensive overview of warfare in the 20th century in all its forms. Describing the causes of wars in the international arena, their course and how peace was made, it also traces the awesome developments in weapons technology and features stills from contemporary World War I film. From balloon flight to bomber aircraft, from breech-loading artillery to rocket systems and chemical warfare, from trench warfare to urban terrorism, the book analyzes as it informs, taking no sides but seeking to increase our understanding of war in all its forms. The author is a historian and a defence analyst who works closely with the Institute for Strategic Studies and the Ministry of Defence. He is the author of numerous books and articles and lectures on military history all over the world.
