Description
In this concise history of war, Jeremy Black ranges across five continents and all of human history, introducing readers to the major themes of warfare and providing astute insights and interpretations. Black eschews technological yardsticks for determining the strengths and weaknesses of a particular military tradition, in favor of a more global model that takes all factors into account.

"A successful enterprise in which [the author] ranges effortlessly from about 35,000 BC to the present in under 200 pages.... Black feels that military history 'often lacks intellectual sophistication.' His own brief account of war through the ages is therefore an elegantly written and salutary corrective."Standpoint Magazine

"Black's coverage of military history contains extensive analyses.... This book will be most useful to students in war studies programs, as well as readers reflecting on the fascinating history of human conflict.... An interesting and challenging book."Times Higher Education Supplement
