In the past century, warfare has become so pervasive and destructive that millions of people are affected by it on a daily basis; nonetheless, many of these conflicts remain poorly understood. Presented in a dramatic newspaper style—combining journalistic insight with historical hindsight—and featuring hundreds of rarely seen photographs, this chronological survey of warfare ranges from World War I to the landings of D-Day, and from the quagmire of Vietnam to the global War on Terror. Writing as if these events were pulled from the headlines, Paul Brewer skillfully and succinctly details the causes of the fighting and the significance of the outcomes, and includes insets that discuss the key figures and concepts relevant to the historical events.
