9780061812354: The Encyclopedia of Military History from 3500 B.C. to the Present, 2nd Revised Edition

Here, in one massive volume, is a complete reference guide to the world's military history from ancient times to the present.

In this Second Revised Edition, the authors have expanded the earlier edition to cover the Iran-Iraq war, the Soviet invasion of Afghanistan, and the wars in Lebanon and the Falkland Islands, giving up-to-date, comprehensive coverage of military history. "Military history' is not only the description of wars and combat operations in general, but also of the concurrent growth of military arts... tactics, strategy, and weaponry.

Each major military event and its effect on world history is covered in an exciting, concise, and complete manner.

Each chapter opens with a succinct essay summarizing the highlights of the period...outstanding leaders, unusual developments, tactical and strategical trends... placing each major operations in its political and social perspective. A continent by continent assessment of wars and battles follows the background description of analysis.

Over 250 maps and illustrations of weapons and fortifications.
