Summary

Spanning the recorded history of ground warfare from antiquity to the Atomic Age, this three-volume authoritative reference work documents it all-from generals to GIs, catapults to Kalashnikovs, ancient Israel to post-Soviet Chechnya. Updated through 2008, over 1,200 detailed A-Z entries, cross-referenced for further reading, chronicle every aspect of ground warfare throughout history. Since the dawn of recorded time, not a year has gone by without armed conflict. From the clashing spears of Sparta to the artillery barrages of Chechnya, everything about war has changed and yet nothing has. Included are more than 700 wars and battles, from the Aryan conquest of India to the Russian War in Chechnya; nearly 600 warrior biographies, from Alexander the Great to Colin Powell; dozens of nations and civilizations, from the Assyrians to the Zulus; and more than 100 authoritative survey essays on subjects such as tactics, weapons, organizations, home front issues, art, economics, psychological and economic warfare, women in war, technology, and war in literature. With entries by more than 200 internationally renowned scholars, this well illustrated and lavishly mapped three volume set is sure to become the standard reference work on the long and tragic history of land warfare. Students, scholars, and military buffs will find in its more than 1,200 entries a wealth of fascinating and provocative information. A must for university libraries, history collections and large public libraries.
