In 2000 years, while the causes of battle have hardly changed, the conduct of battle has changed and developed. This is a review of the continuous process of change, from AD 9 through to the Gulf War. By analyzing some 30 battle confrontations, it shows how advanced we are in the art of warfare.

By analysis of some 30 significant battle confrontations, Bryan Perrett shows just how advanced we now are in the art of warfare.
