‘Every age has its own kind of war.’ – Clausewitz, On War
Raids, invasions and sieges; trench battles, naval encounters and aerial dogfights; civil wars, guerrilla wars, trade wars and nuclear wars; wars of succession, religion and independence – wars have been fought in all kinds of ways and for all kinds of reasons.
From the ancient world to the invasion of Ukraine, from the Hundred Years’ War to the Six Day War, from the Wars of the Roses to the Opium Wars, across over 1000 pages The Encyclopedia of Warfare presents the reader with more than 5000 entries – arranged chronologically – on wars, campaigns, empires, rebellions and counter-insurgencies.
From battles fought with spears to the latest drone technology, The Encyclopedia of Warfare features an immense range of conflict. Each war narrative, where appropriate, includes descriptions of its campaigns, battles and sieges. All this is easily accessed via an extensive index.
Featuring over 600 full colour maps created specifically for this volume, The Encyclopedia of Warfare is written in a style accessible to both the student and the general enthusiast, and reflects the latest thinking among military historians. The Encyclopedia of Warfare is an authoritative compendium of almost five millennia of conflict.

A remarkable piece of work. 1000 pages sharing details of wars from 2500bc right up to the ongoing invasion of Ukraine. Perfect as a coffee table reference book to pick up and dip into rather than read cover to cover. Beautiful maps with details regarding officers, units and troop movements to help provide a better understanding of the shape that the wars took.
All wars listed in chronologic order which helps you follow trends and also see what conflicts were occurring in various places of the world at the same time and how these conflicts shaped both future wars and also the world we live in currently!
