100 Wars that Shaped World History (100 Series) by Samuel Willard Crompton

100 Wars That Shaped World History is another wonderful addition to Bluewood Books popular 100 Series. Albert Camus said about war, We used to wonder where war lived, what it was that made it so vile. And now we realize that we know where it lives, that it is inside ourselves. Arguing against war with Mexico, Abraham Lincoln called military victory, the attractive rainbow that rises in showers of blood.<P>100 Wars That Shaped World History covers ancient wars, such as the Persian Wars (499-479 B.C.) and the Peloponnesian War (431-404 B.C.) to the modern World Wars, the Six-Day War (1967) and the Persian Gulf War (1991). 100 Wars is jam-packed full of interesting facts and information of 100 great and significant conflicts, ranging from the religious wars, civil wars, wars fought for land and economic gain or political independence. 100 Wars That Shaped World History provides engaging, clear, concise and accurate accounts of pivotal conflicts that have been fought throughout history and around the world. 100 Wars also covers many significant consequences of wars -- those that have led to lasting peace and alliances between opposing forces to those that have created histories of distrust and continued conflicts. Readers will also learn about many of the great military and political leaders that emerged-or those whose careers suddenly ended.
