Discussing the key issues of modern warfare, Hew Strachan’s work examines the theory and practice of land warfare in Europe since 1700.

Looking at warfare in the context of social and political change, Dr. Strachan interprets his subject matter as widely as possible, and European Armies and the Conduct of War considers the roles of air power and the impact of the United States on European military developments.

Through the eyes of the major theorists of the day, European Armies examines:

* how the social and political influences which shape armies, also mould the attitude of those armies to warfare
* the story of techicnal innovation
* the mounting pace of industrialization and its impact of warfare.

Recent military history has tended to focus on the relationship between armies and society and there has been much original research on the subject of the conduct of war. This book brings these approaches together, providing information and insight vital to the study of this fascinating era.

Review:

"Each time I read Stoehr's introductions to Goodman's works my admiration for his courage and honesty grows. Paul would have praised him, a millenarian rather than a utopian, one who does not look forward to a future state of things that can be planned, but as an anarchist continuing to exist and act conserving the tradition of Thoreau." - Ivan Illich, philosopher and social historian "Goodman's frightening brilliance and integrity scared people, for his was the honesty of the moral man who saw things and connections with clarity that others did not even know were there. Writers and thinkers have a vogue. They are in fashion or forgotten. If Goodman is forgotten, if his work is found only in ashheaps, it is where humanity will end up." - Marcus Raskin, Professor, Graduate Program of Public Policy, George Washington University "Paul Goodman looking back - the sensible citizen, who's read everything, untrammeled by party lines, still a stubborn anarchist pacifist, useful to the old (me) as he was practically useful once to the young (our children)." - Grace Paley, writer and peace activist "Any page by Paul Goodman will give you not only originality and brilliance but wisdom, that is, something to think about. He is our peculiar, urban, twentieth-century Thoreau, the quintessential American mind of our time." - Hayden Carruth, poet and essayist "Paul Goodman was our mid-century's greatest American-language thinker-poet. In a society increasingly specialized, he shone as a Renaissance artist: there was nothing in prose or verse he could not do well. What a joy now to rediscover his original charm and wisdom." - Ned Roren, composer and diarist
