Maps of War: Mapping Conflicts Through the Centuries by Jeremy Black
Map addicts will take to this gorgeously illustrated book like a warship to water as military historian Jeremy Black takes us on a visual voyage into our past. Using more than 150 historical maps, he investigates how conflict was planned and recorded by our military forebears, providing fascinating insight to methods of land warfare from the beginnings of military mapping up to 1600 to the present day. It includes extended features on the First and Second World Wars.
