Synopsis

From Marathon to Afghanistan the history of the world has often centred around the battles and military campaigns of the time. No student can understand the period he is studying without recourse to assessing the wars of the time, and their outcome. The military historian is constantly seeking basic data on a host of conflicts outside his specialist topic. This volume offers clear narrative description of over 1,400 military actions, placing each example in the context of any wider campaign of which it was part, summarising the forces and commanders involved, the reason for the battle, how it progressed, its result and the ramifications. The book is an instant source of summary, data and assessment and is well suited to sit on both personal and institutional library shelves.
