Both multicultural and international in perspective, this A-Z reference covers all aspects of the history of war--on land, sea, and in the air--from the Battle of Marathon in 490 B.C. to the present day. Besides a full coverage of battles, campaigns, wars, weapons and equipment, military organization, defense systems, and military forces, the entries, ranging from 50 to 4000 words, include social history on the military and society around the world, concepts and terms, maps and other illustrations, and biographies, making this reference the most comprehensive in its field.
Serving both as a standard work of reference on military history and as a study of the evolution of military methods, the set will appeal to both professional historians and amateur military historians as well as enthusiasts of military affairs and the ever-growing constituency of war gamers.
