Encyclopedia of Classic Warfare
An Encyclopedia of Classic Warfare from Megiddo to Waterlooav Jack Watkins
SlutsåldCivilizations have been fighting each other for thousands of years. Some mighty civilizations have left few traces except descriptions of their greatest martial endeavours and some ancient conflicts remain unresolved today. Encyclopedia of Classic Warfare is an authoritatively written and brilliantly illustrated reference work to the key wars and battles fought from ancient times up to the Battle of Waterloo in 1815. Arranged in chronological order from the early Middle Eastern conflicts such as Megiddo and Kadesh through to the Napoleonic Wars, each entry includes full-colour illustrations - either maps or artworks - as well as information boxes containing key facts and figures and a description of the context, the course of battle and the conflict's aftermath. An easily accessible guide to more than 160 battles and campaigns, Encyclopedia of Classic Warfare is essential reading for enthusiasts and general readers alike.
