Description - Warfare in World History by Michael S. Neiberg

The immediate effects of war can be catastrophic, but wars have also proved to be the most important instruments of 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. Warfare in World History covers the major periods of military history, each delineated by new advances in technology and the unique social, political and cultural contexts in which its wars were fought. 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.
