Synopsis

Warfare in the 16th to 19th Centuries by Mark Bergin

Warfare in the 16th to 19th Centuries explores how the face of battle changed over four centuries, as the methods of the Middle Ages gave way to the introduction of firearms and mechanised warfare. From the Napoleonic Wars to the American Revolution, this title guides the reader through some of the most crucial battles the world has ever seen. Take a blood-spattered journey through mankind's darkest days in the fact-filled Battle Zones series. Full-colour illustrations and military diagrams show the uniforms, equipment and strategies of the most powerful leaders and soldiers of history. The series explores the major conflicts through the ages and charts the dramatic changes in the way wars were fought. The books approach their subject from multiple perspectives, including military organisation, technological development and political cause and effect. They deal with battles on land, in the air and at sea, from bloody civil wars to conflict on a global scale. An exciting mixture of fascinating illustrations and photographs of period artifacts and historical reconstructions bring each period to life. Accompanying the main text are a host of paintings of important people and events. Maps and cross-sections detail the geography of the struggle. Illustrations and photographs are clearly annotated and captioned. All Battle Zones titles feature a foil cover, a timeline of important events, a glossary and a full index.
