Warfare and History

Series Editor: Jeremy Black

This new series of single-authored books on war, warfare and society marks a major new publishing initiative in military history for undergraduate students. Covering the whole span of history, the series seeks to encourage works on the impact of war and the preparations for war on social, economic and political developments. The books will eschew the 'battles and generals' approach, and seek to place militarism in context.
