1st ed., 1978. 222 pp., profusely illustrated with a wealth of maps & plans. D.j., 25 x 19cm. Spine of d.j., sunned o/w Nr.FINE. This volume of A World Atlas of Military History is the second book to be published in this series and covers the years 1860 to 1945. Militarily, the period was dominated by one major and two world-wide collisions of arms, namely the American Civil War and the First and Second World Wars. These are examined in detail but much space is also devoted to the numerous minor engagements which enlivened those years. The author demonstrates his unrivalled supremacy in the field of historical cartography and the book contains a comprehensive index, a feature curiously lacking in so many historical atlases.
