Technology and War II: Postmodern War?

The coverage is very selective and somewhat quirky, and mostly elides over specific battles and individual actors - you won't find much here about Hitler, for example, or even the Holocaust, and Stalin gets barely a mention. Nor can you expect to read much about Churchill or Eisenhower. Neither Ulysses S. Grant nor the American Civil War even merit a mention in the Index. But for aficionados of history who rely on other books for more in-depth coverage of wars, this book has an interesting focus and unusual selection of interesting illustrations. ( )

Good survey of warfare through the ages, nicely illustrated. ( )
