Placing eighteenth-century warfare in a truly global context, Jeremy Black challenges conventional accounts and offers a reappraisal of debates in Western and Asian history. This concise, up-to-date survey assumes little prior knowledge and provides cutting-edge historical insights into a crucial period of world history.

Industry Reviews

'The book demonstrates Jeremy's command of an impressive range of literature, and his capacity to convey these insights succinctly' - Peter H. Wilson, Grant Professor of History, University of Hull, UK 'The best compact survey of eighteenth-century warfare. Black integrates the Western experience, but does not write from a Western perspective...I regard it as one of the best books he has written throughout his distinguished career.' - Dennis Showalter, Professor of History, Colorado College, USA
