Synopsis

Warfare in the 20th Century by Andrew Robertshaw

Warfare in the 20th Century explores how the wars of the modern era escalated to a global scale, examining the causes and consequences of the conflicts. The text takes a comprehensive look at the period, including decisive issues such as dictators, foreign policies and the devastation caused by modern fighting techniques. The book covers conflicts all around the globe, including extended analysis of the First and Second World Wars. 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.
