Overview

War in the World: 1450-1600 offers an account of late fifteenth and sixteenth-century warfare in a global context. Firstly by looking at conflict between non-Western powers and, secondly, by putting due weight on warfare between Western and non-Western powers, the book provides comparative context for trying to understand a range of global conflicts and their connections in this period.
