5.0 out of 5 stars succinct and scholarly
I teach this period to a group of A level students and this book has proved invaluable. Densely packed succinct writing is a godsend to a busy teacher but this is sufficiently detailed and scholarly to really give what is required. Very interesting as well and a good read.

2.0 out of 5 stars if you want analysis you'll be disappointed.
The title is something of a misnomer: it is a thorough swift narrative of the wars of the period but there is little discussion of any 'patterns'. If you want a clear narrative this has lots going for it, if you want analysis you'll be disappointed.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Great Book by a Great Professor, 14 Jan 1998
By A Customer
This review is from: The Patterns of War Since the Eighteenth Century (Paperback)
An outstanding work that can be turned to time and time again. Addington does a great job of consolidating a lengthy period of time into an easy read. I have used the book for research sources for several papers and studies. I studied under him as an under-grad at The Citadel and took his class. The book is well though out and well researched, a great reference.
