Warfare in the Eighteenth Century by Professor Jeremy Black
Book DescriptionIt is an account of how the art of warfare developed over the century - from the restrained military practices of Marlborough and Frederick the Great, and the hideous bloodletting of the Afghans, right through to the guerrilla tactics used by the American colonists in the first successful ideological war of 1776-81. The detailed descriptions of each individual conflict are brought to life with 150 photographs, illustrations and computer-generated maps.

This sumptuous volume looks at the development of the city map through time, revealing how we organize the urban space, from skyline profiles, bird's eye views and panoramas, to the schematic maps of transport networks and road layouts to help us navigate, and statistical maps that can provide information on human aspirations.
UK Kirkus Review » Jeremy Black's book, another in the Cassell series, covers both familiar and unfamiliar ground. He deals with Marlborough, Frederick the Great and the young Bonaparte; but looks also at Chinese, Indian and African warfare as well as the American War of Independence. His text is as interesting as his pictures are superb. (Kirkus UK)
