Chronicle of 20th Century Conflict covers the whole range of violent confrontation from the vast campaigns and mass slaughter of the two great wars, to the ethnic strife that is so large a feature of our present world. It is a gripping look at our century that will be of interest and concern to everyone alive today and for generations to come.
Incorporating hundreds of black and white photographs, this book presents a year-by-year account of the wars, battles and civil conflicts that have disfigured our times. The events which made headline news around the world, from the Boer War to the Gulf War, are described in a dramatic journalistic presentation, accompanied by chronologies listing the key events for every year. In addition there are over 40 special features, providing detailed background information on such important topics as the Nazi concentration camps and the conflicts of post-independent Africa.
