"This is a tribute to Black's industry and scholarship...I am confident that it will feature prominently in the working libraries of professional historians and the reading lists of their students." Richard Holmes, Literary Review "This volume is essential for military historians and could be perused profitably by the general reader." Virginia Quarterly Review "With this book, Jeremy Black provides an account of how war has been waged over the past five and a half centuries in the European and non-European worlds. He has written what is in effect a global history of armed conflict." David B. Ralston, American Historical Review
