PERILOUS GLORY: The Rise of Western Military Power
Bibliophile price: £1.00
An opinionated and crisply argued single volume history of the not-only-Western way of war, this expansive history surveys warfare from ancient times to the current wars in the Middle East. It challenges accepted ideas about the development of military strength, the impact of culture on war, the future of Western dominance and more in a splendidly sweeping account from the Stone Age to cyberspace, forever questioning received wisdom. France provides a more balanced approach than the standard account of the rise of industrialised warfare and has an enviable grasp on both subject and literature in a book that is a worthy addition to any military history collection. 438pp in softback, 16 pages of plates, 28 illustrations in total plus three maps. Yale University Press publication.
