Synopsis

Chronicle of War by Paul Brewer

This book combines the excitement of a daily newspaper with the drama of world military history from 1854 - the date of the introduction of photography to the battlefield - to the present day. The book comprises newspaper-style articles, arranged in year order, interspersed with features on particular innovations or events that deserve more in-depth treatment. Covering all of the major wars and many minor ones, this book will appeal to both the military enthusiast, intrigued by a novel approach to the history of modern warfare, and to the casual reader looking for a comprehensive yet dramatic description of the events of military history since the beginning of the photographic age.
