How did we get from clubs and spears to machine guns and drone missiles? In his new book, military historian Martin van Creveld has compiled a concise guide to the history of war in 100 key events, from 10,000 BC to the present day.

It includes battles in the Stone Age, Vikings raids, medieval conflicts, revolutionary wars, the Napoleonic wars, the world wars, the Iraq war and the role of women in war.

With intriguing facts and a worldwide range, War in 100 Events is an immensely entertaining volume for military buffs and laymen alike.
