Combining journalistic insight with historical hindsight, The History of Modern Warfare is an authoritative record of world military history from 1854 - the year in which photography was introduced into the battlefield - to the current day. Presented in a dramatic newspaper style and covering all major battles, from the Crimean War to the War on Terror, the book is packed with information on important developments as well as details about the personalities who influenced the outcomes of wars across the world. With its novel approach, The History of Modern Warfare will appeal to both the military enthusiast and the general reader looking for a comprehensive yet dramatic depiction of the campaigns and conflicts that have changed the face of the world since the beginning of the photographic era. Drawing on unique resources of original photographs, it allows the reader to experience warfare as it was lived.
