One of the most complete overviews of war ever assembled, THE ENCYCLOPEDIA OF WARFARE treats every aspect of the ancient art of war, ranging from the army formations of the Egyptians, to the problems of peacekeeping in Somalia. In thrilling detail, it covers the majors wars of history, their significant battles and outstanding commanders, and discusses the ever-changing technology of war and the life and experience of the ordinary soldier. Numerous boxes throughout focus on particularly noteworthy aspects of the history of the conflict, such as weapons development. All of the techniques and requirements of warfare are covered, particularly the strategy and tactics that have had a decisive impact on the outcome of the fighting.

Covered in concise detail are many of history's greatest battles, such as Agincourt, Waterloo and Verdun, accompanied by full-color maps for ease of reference. Particularly close study is given to the campaigns of the great commanders -- giants like Caesar, Hannibal and Napoleon. And the development of naval warfare and warship design is analyzed in full.

An important undertaking, THE ENCYCLOPEDIA OF WARFARE belongs on the shelf of every history enthusiast.
