Review:

'Global, spanning all of human history from ancient times until the twenty-first century, and elegantly produced: this is as comprehensive as it comes. '
—Joanna Bourke, Birkbeck College, University of London, author of 'An Intimate History of Killing: Face-to-Face Killing in Twentieth-Century Warfare'

'The Encyclopedia of War offers a unique and comprehensive insight into the history of warfare, with over 650 detailed entries that will be invaluable to History lecturers and students. The Encyclopedia is an essential reference work for any library. '
— Fiona McLean, Humanities Subject Librarian, University of Chester

‘A well-planned and interesting work that ranges widely to cover war as a global phenomenon. An excellent choice of contributors and a thoughtful coverage of topics. The best work of its type.’
—Jeremy Black, University of Exeter, author of ‘ The Great War and the Making of the Modern World’.

The Encyclopedia of War provides comprehensive coverage of the history of warfare since ancient times. With detailed essays and shorter entries – on hundreds of well-selected events, military and political leaders, and key concepts – the Encyclopedia is an invaluable resource for scholars and students and an indispensable reference work for any library.‘
—Jack S. Levy, Rutgers University.
