Description
From 17th-century combat on horse and by hand to nuclear bombs dropped from high-tech aircraft, from guerrilla groups to national armies, from heated battles to cold wars, the History of Warfare series helps you understand the conflicts that have shaped our world. Edited by one of the world's most distinguished military historians and filled with full-color maps, rare photographs, and illustrations, these three volumes capture military tactics in the war room and out on the field. Please refer to our order form for a complete list of titles in this series.

For the half-century following WWII the great powers prepared themselves for another, deadlier international conflagration...one that never happened. Politicians and strategists devoted time and financial resources figuring out how to fight -- or avoid -- nuclear war; meanwhile the industrial complex dedicated itself to producing ever more complex weaponry. Through thoughtful analysis and striking photography, follow the changing expectations during this period, and how these expectations were influenced by the actual experience of limited warfare. From the evolution of nuclear strategy and technology to the effect of Korea and Vietnam to contemporary conflicts like Desert Storm, you'll see how a revival of conventional strategy has raised the possibility of a revolution in military affairs.
