summary

"This important work... synthesizes the evolution of warfare from 1775 to the present." -- Military Review

A thorough revision of a highly successful text, this new edition provides a comprehensive picture of the evolution of modern warfare.

From reviews of the first edition:

"There is nothing else in print that tells so much so concisely about how war has been conducted since the days of Gen. George Washington."  -- Russell F. Weigley

"A superior synthesis. Well written, nicely organized, remarkably comprehensive, and laced with facts."  -- Military Affairs
