Rate this:
From clubs, maces and slings to rockets, missiles and nuclear weapons, this two-volume set covers the weapons and war strategies from ancient times to the present. The book provides an historic and geographic scope that is worldwide, yet is arranged chronologically with alphabetical and categorized lists of all entries for fast, easy reference. Written with the needs of students and general readers in mind, the articles present clear discussions of the topics, explaining any terms or references that may be unclear. The focus - more on the technical and strategic development of weapons and tactics than on a narrative chronological history of events - should allow students of history, political science, and science and technology to gain a broad understanding of the technological and strategic advances made over time and geography.
