In this wide-ranging survey, a team of top international historians examines the cataclysmic conflicts that have shaped the modern world. Beginning with the Boer War, the expert contributors analyse the horror and drama of two world wars, the civil wars of the 1920s and 1930s, the Cold War, wars of decolonization, Middle Eastern wars after 1945, and the changing patterns of conflict from the 1990s to the present day. Their authoritative yet accessible accounts are supplemented by hundreds of photographs, and specially commissioned maps and battle plans. War Since 1900 is the most comprehensive survey of modern warfare yet published and essential reading for anyone interested in modern military history.
