Contents Companion to Military History 1.
Summary The Oxford Companion to Military History provides a uniquely comprehensive overview of military history from classical times to the present day, including the social, political, technological, and economic background of major conflicts. Entries cover people (military leaders, theorists, inventors, etc.); weapons and equipment; wars, campaigns and battles; strategy and tactics; logistics; fortifications; military life; institutions; literature, art, and music. Although the scope of the work embraces all aspects of warfare across the world and through all periods, the primary focus is on land warfare in Europe and America from the 18th century to the present day, and aspects of naval and air history that bear directly on land operations.
