Overview

Five thousand years of warfare are the subject of this spectacular, full-color book. From the ancient Egyptians to today's guerrilla warriors and high-tech armies, the whole history of the world's battles and wars is chronicled and illustrated.

The Timechart of Military History sets out to place the battles and wars of history in their correct perspective, allowing the reader to follow events across the continents. As Dr. David G. Chandler, formerly Head of the Department of War Studies, Royal Military Academy Sandhurst, points out in his foreword, the years of peace in the history of humanity are dwarfed by the years of war. Even a brief glance at the pages of this timechart will demonstrate that the age in which we live is peaceful indeed by comparison with earlier epochs. This book includes:

  • The History of Warfare - from spears to space
  • A-Z of Battles - the most significant battles of history
  • Timechart of the World's Wars - a spectacular running diagram showing 'what happened when' in all parts of the world, from 3000 BC to the present
  • The World's Major Wars - the principal wars and epochs of warfare in detail
  • Great Battles - a series of maps depicting the most significant battles of history
  • Bibliography - a wide-ranging and up-to-date list
  • Museums and Places of Interest - a worldwide compendium
