Vast in scope a superb book,
By A Customer
This review is from: War (Oxford Readers) (Paperback)
I first read this book when studying for a masters degree 8 years ago and it hasnt dated.It is vast in its scope with the first section covering the experiences of war from the eyes of those in the action from a rating at traflagar to ethnic cleansing in Bosnia. This is only the start the book then gathers some of the greatest writers in this field and covers causes of war, ethics , strategy, war and the miliatry establishment, total and limited war. If its about war theres something on it in this book from feminism to Blitzkrieg , from arms dealers to air power. With nearly a hundred authors contributing this is a must have book for the student of war.

It seems more digestable than many other strategy focused texts.
