This was a period when militaries, governments and publics digested the lessons of the Great War and prepared for ather major struggle. Black also locates the period in terms of long-term questions in military history, including the relationship between symmetrical and asymmetrical warfare, the tensions surrounding invation, the pressures and possibilities created by techlogical change and the impact of ideology on the causes and conduct of war. Black's book devotes particular attention to the Far East as part of his worldwide coverage.
