Reviews
An incisive and well-informed overview of how warfare has evolved. . . . sheds light on how new technologies, from the composite bow to drones, have altered battlefield and geopolitical strategies.-- "Publishers Weekly"
From the first armies to clashes of drones and dirty bombs, this is eye-opening, big-picture stuff.-- "BBC History Magazine"
Readable and sharp . . . does what it says on the tin.-- "Independent"
Dyer writes with eloquence and authority . . . particularly effective in painting in broad strokes the evolution of warfare.-- "Irish Examiner"
Underwrite an overview of a complicated topic with one of these new short-and-sweet distillations . . . with maps, charts, sidebars, and illustrations to bring it alive.-- "Mosaic, Morgan Stanley"
This book is unique because, rather than examining any individual war, it looks at the 'How' how wars and conflicts were enacted and how that evolved over time.-- "City Book Review"
