This completely updated and revised edition of Warfare and Armed Conflicts presents a record of casualties from the last five centuries. Additionally, ongoing conflicts that began before 2001 and that were covered in the second edition are now covered through 2007. Events and conflicts that broke out since 2001, including 9/11 and global terrorism, Iraq, Afghanistan, Israel-Hezbollah, are extensively covered, too.
To make Warfare and Armed Conflicts the most comprehensive and accurate statistical compendium of modern armed conflict available, the author has incorporated newly discovered data, offering more information for many older conflicts. Arranged roughly by century and then subdivided by world region, the entries proceed chronologically and vary from paragraph to chapter-length. Each entry provides the name and date of the conflict, precursor events, strategies and details, the outcome and its impact.
