Warfare in World History by Michael S. Neiberg

Book Description

Despite the catastrophic effects of war, wars have also proved to be instrumental to long-term change in world history This text is the first of its kind to survey how warfare has developed from ancient times to the present day and the role it has played in shaping the world we know. The periods discussed include: * the pre-gunpowder era * the development of gunpowder weapons and their rapid adoption in Western Europe * the French Revolution and the industrialization of warfare * the First and Second World Wars * the Cold War and the wars of liberation fought across the Third World. With in-depth examples illustrating the dominant themes in the history of warfare, Warfare in World History focuses not only on the famous and heroic, but also discusses the experiences of countless millions of unknowns who have fought in wars over time.

Books By Author Michael S. Neiberg

Path to War by Michael S. Neiberg Path to War, Hardback (November 2016)

In 1914 the country was firmly determined to stay clear of Europe's war. By 1917, it was ready to jump into the fray. What happened in between? Acclaimed historian Michael S. Neiberg examines America's entry into World War One, shedding light on the dilemmas and crises the country faced from 1914 to 1917.

Dance of the Furies by Michael S. Neiberg Dance of the Furies, Paperback (October 2013)

Looking beyond diplomats and generals, the author shows that neither nationalist passions nor desires for revenge took Europe to war in 1914. He gives voice to a generation who suddenly found themselves compelled to participate in a ghastly, protracted orgy of violence they never imagined would come to pass.

Blood of Free Men by Michael S. Neiberg Blood of Free Men, Hardback (October 2012)

Looks at the drama surrounding the Liberation of Paris in 1944, as the Allies struggled to reclaim Europe, Hitler plotted it's destruction, and a handful of conspirators strove to save the City of Lights. This book shows how a host of brave fighters, commanders, and officials saved the city and, in the process, shaped the outcome of World War II.
