About this product
- DescriptionIn this companion volume to Western Warfare, 1775-1882, Jeremy Black takes his analysis of modern warfare into the 20th century. A distinctive feature of the author's approach is the coverage of both land and naval warfare as well as conflict within the West and between Western and n-Western powers. Beginning with the British conquest of Egypt in 1882, Black goes on to examine the Spanish-American War of 1898, the Boer War, and the Balkan conflicts leading to world war in 1914. A revisionist account of the First World War is followed by a discussion of Western expansionism in the period to 1936. Chapters on the interwar years and the Second World War lead to a discussion of the retreat from empire and the advent of the Cold War. The narrative closes with the end of the Vietnam War in 1975 and a discussion of the limitations of Western military technique, doctrine, and techlogy. Black offers a new and challenging interpretation of modern warfare that will be required reading t only for students of military history but for all those interested in the impact of war in the making of the modern world.
