A succinct survey of the changing complexities of modern warfare - with particular emphasis on land warfare - and offers a useful introduction to this important aspect of European and world history. Peter Browning examines how and why warfare changed betweem 1792 and 1945. He traces the development from the 'impulse' warfare of Napoleon, via the political wars of the mid nineteenth century and the trench warfare of 1914-18, to Blitzkrieg in 1939-45. These practices are studied with reference to the theory of warfare and especially the ideas of Carl von Clausewitz - one of the great theorists of war.

An easy read and very good introductory text for a student of warfare. I have used this with my A level class studying a module on warfare 1792-1945. Despite a few sweeping comments (not unusual in this field), I personally enjoyed the book and it will serve as a good reference in the future. You must expect some generalisations in a text that covers such a long period. It may be a little unfair to dwell on that point, because this is a great start for someone who knows little about the subject. Although the book follows a chronological approach, the key themes and patterns are clearly expressed under relevant headings that steer the reader throughout. This 'parachute' view of the development of warfare between 1792-1945 should inspire readers to do some follow up and dig a little deeper. Recommended.
