9780415629201: Introduction to Global Military History: 1775 to the Present Day

This lucid account of military developments around the modern world begins with the American War of Independence and the French revolutionary wars and continues chronologically to the latest 21st century conflicts. It combines determinedly global coverage with thought-provoking analysis not only of the military aspects of conflict but also its social, cultural, political and economic dimensions and consequences.

By placing familiar events alongside the largely unknown, the reader is forced to reassess the standard grand narrative of military history that rests on assumptions of Western cultural and technological superiority. It will be essential reading for students worldwide, whether studying modern military history, modern world history, history and international relations or war and society.

This fully updated second edition includes:

    • chapter introductions and conclusions to assist study and revision
    • 'Voices of War' sourced extracts from the field of conflict
    • case studies in each chapter to support the narrative and provoke discussion
    • a 12-page colour map section and over 20 other integrated maps
    • annotated references from the latest publications in the field
