419 pp, 8vo (8 5/8" H), hard cover in dust jacket. 20 b&w battle maps. "...provides a sketch of the past century (1850-1950) of warfare by land, sea and air, with a commentary in interpretation of it. The emphasis is always on the military aspects of war - strategy, tactics, weapons, administration, transport and new scientific developments - rather than on political and moral issues...Five chapters each are devoted to World War I and II; single chapters to the American Civil War, the Franco-Prussian War, the Boer and the Russo-Japanese Wars taken together, the Far Eastern campaigns from 1910 onwards, and the present-day Communist offensive in Asia; subsidiary chapters deal with the many minor campaigns of the last century, with the emergence of modern air power, with administration in the field, and with the special problems of guerilla and partisan warfare." Area of light browning to pages 84 & 85 at gutter due to previously laid in newspaper clipping, small area of delamination to cloth on front board, light wrinkling at top/bottom of spine, very light edge wear. Dust jacket has minor edge wear, light edge wrinkling, several small closed tears and chips, fading to spine color, slight fading on rear panel, several small watermarks on spine, minor soiling.
