Excellent introduction to history,
This review is from: Access to History Themes: The Changing Nature Warfare, 1700-1945 (Paperback)
Clearly written and with enough depth to satisfy, this book both educates and provides an excellent starting point for further research. Covering such a long period in a relatively short book is not easy, but Stewart successfully manages to highlight the major themes and events which shaped advances in military technology and thinking over two centuries. Anyone studying military history or any modern historical course with a warfare component would do well to get hold of this book.
