Publisher Description

A fascinating study of the changing face of the art of warfare over the past 2000 years, by one of today's most readable historians

Mankind has always been in conflict. Without war, there would be no peace, no stability, no safety. Men go to war to defend, or acquire, territory that they see as rightly theirs; to defend, or impose, beliefs that they hold as fundamental truths. In 2,000 years, while the causes of battle have hardly changed, the conduct of battle has changed and developed apace. Technology advances, weaponry becomes ever more powerful, military thinking shifts again and again. In THE CHANGING FACE OF BATTLE, historian Bryan Perrett reviews that continuous process of change, from AD 9 through to the Gulf War. By analysis of some 30 significant battle confrontations he shows, in clear detail, just how advanced we now are in the art of warfare.
