This volume provides a survey of the main themes in the study of military history from 1500 to the present day as the author reveals the main trends in the practice and approach to military history and proposes a new manifesto for the subject to move forward. This study demonstrates the limitations of current approaches, including common generalizations, omissions, and over-simplications. Theoretical discussions, with reference to specific conflicts, suggest how these limitations can be remedied and adapted, whilst incorporating contributions from other disciplines.
