Abstract

This book examines the theory and practice of land warfare in Europe since 1700, discussing key issues in context of social and political change. European Armies and the Conduct of War considers the roles of air power and the influence of the United States on European military developments. Emphasizing the views of major historical military theorists, the book examines how social and political forces shape armies and warfare, technological change, and the influence of industrialization on warfare. The book synthesizes the research of recent decades into relationships between armies and society, as well as on the conduct of war.
