This ground-breaking 5-volume reference is a comprehensive print and electronic resource covering the history of warfare from ancient times to the present day, across the entire globe.

Individual entries range from 1,000 to 6,000 words with the longer, essay-style contributions giving a detailed analysis of key developments and ideas. Drawing on an experienced and internationally diverse editorial board, the Encyclopedia is the first to offer readers at all levels an extensive reference work based on the best and most recent scholarly research.

He was one of the founding editors of the leading scholarly journal, The International History Review, and is editor of two book series, ‘Seminar Studies in History’ and ‘Short Histories of Big Ideas’.  He has edited numerous scholarly publications including The World War Two Reader (2004), A Companion to Europe , 1900-1945 (Blackwell, 2006) and A Companion to International History, 1900-2001 (Blackwell, 2007).

Review:

“Along the way he provides fascinating tidbits of history and culture. Recommended for academic collections,

especially those focusing on current events.”  (Reference Reviews, 26 July 2012)

Named CHOICE Outstanding Title for 2012

“Simply put, no reference tool currently in publication covers the topic of war with comparable inclusiveness; engaging, well-informed scholarship; and up-to-date analysis.”  (Book List, 1 May2012)

“This encyclopedia provides a good introduction prior to reading any authoritative account of a major conflict such as the Civil War. The reader will take away an understanding of strategy as well as causes and results of each conflict. In fact, this series even provides “further reading” sections following each entry to guide additional research.”  (Civil War News, 1 August 2012)

“A masterpiece of meticulous scholarship, superbly organized, impressively comprehensive, and thoroughly 'user friendly', "The Encyclopedia Of War" is an essential core addition to personal, academic, and community library Military History and World History reference collections.”  (Midwest Book Review, 1 June 2012)

“Whether examining the Angolan civil wars (1975-2002) or the course of the Arab-Israeli conflict, students and instructors alike will find much to like in this dynamic set.  Highly recommended for high-school and academic institutions of all levels.”  (Booklist, 15 May 2012)

“Even technical entries are clearly composed, making them accessible to researchers at various levels. Younger users will learn from this source the value and pleasure imparted by a traditional format, but libraries must decide whether to provide access to both the print and online versions. Summing Up: Essential. Lower-division undergraduates and above; general readers.”  (Choice, 1 June 2012)

"Using a huge international gathering of editors and contributors, Martel, a specialist in the history of modern warfare, has crafted a rich resource with entries on major wars, battles, and the people who played a significant role in shaping the nature of warfare." (Library Journal, 28 February 2012)
