world history of warfare, from the Greco-Persian Wars in 500 BC to the American Revolution, ending 1783 AD.
22 centuries of warfare. 22 wars that changed the world.
Written in an accessible and engaging style by veteran history writer Joseph Cummins, The War Chronicles: From Chariots to Flintlocks spans most of recorded history and much of the globe in recounting the invasions, battles, and revolutions that have had the greatest effect on human affairs. Each account includes a quick-reference summary, a timeline, an overview of the war, essays on its principal leaders, a series of short, often offbeat features on particular aspects of the conflict, and a narrative account of a pivotal battle. The result is a multifaceted and consistently fascinating history of human conflict.
The best and worst of humanity is on display here, in a collection that will act as a perfect primer for novices while offering seasoned history readers new perspectives on many famous and not-so-well-known conflicts.
