Warfare: A Visual History combines historical engravings and diagrams with an engaging modern text to create a visual study of humankind’s extraordinary ingenuity in inventing new ways to wage war. A chronological and geographical study of arms and armour is followed by a separate section that provides thumbnail studies of individual items of militaria-from swords to siege engines, from helmets to handguns-so that the researcher can choose to study a particular era or seek an evolutionary overview. Navigational features include coloured tabs with cross-references, timelines of key battles and inventions, and silhouettes of warriors through time.
