Summary

This book is one of the theme texts in the Cambridge Perspectives in History series. Peter Browning provides an evocative and lucid account of the changing nature and methods of warfare, in particular land warfare. The themes explored include the conduct of war from the late 18th century to 1945, the role of technology, communications and transport, the impact of war on society, and the changing role of women in warfare. The Changing Nature of Warfare is illustrated and includes a selection of primary sources.
