A magnificent visual survey of how conflict was recorded and planned, using maps produced at the time to reveal how warfare and its documentation has changed through the centuries.
Jeremy Black, internationally known military historian and Professor of History at the University of Exeter, is the author of The Cold War: A Military History, Rethinking World War Two: The Conflict and its Legacy and Metropolis, among many others. He is also a keen writer on maps and their history. This book brings together his two main interests.
A great way to understand how battles were shaped by the landscapes
on which they were fought. * History Revealed *
A hugely important historical work which deserves great credit. The maps and illustrations are many and varied and cannot fail to fascinate scholars and laymen alike. * This England *
Lavishly illustrated and beautifully produced. Strongly recommended. * Firetrench *
These numerous, diverse and beautiful maps alone justify adding Maps of War to a personal collection. * Spectrum Culture (US) *
