Written by leading strategist Professor Colin Gray, the book provides students with a good grounding in the contribution of war to the development of the modern world, from the pre-industrial era to the age of international terrorism and smart weapons. This second edition has been thoroughly revised and updated: - It is the first one-volume strategic history textbook on the market; - It covers all the major wars of the past two centuries; - It is up to date and comprehensive, including new chapters on colonial warfare, the American Civil War, and technology and warfare.
