How has war shaped modern society? How has it changed between the introduction of firearms and the invention of the atom bomb? How is war waged today? The Oxford History of Modern War examines the techniques, technology, and theory of war from the 'military revolution' of the seventeenth century to the present day, with fascinating thematic chapters covering air and sea warfare, combat experience, women and war, and opposition to war. This new and updated edition brings the story of war into the twenty-first century.
