The first reference work of its kind, Encyclopedia of Wars describes not only the military aspect of wars--the causes of conflict, an enumeration of battles, and a summary of the outcome(s)--but also the social and political context in which the wars occurred. From the Crusades to the Revolutionary War to the Persian Gulf War, this three-volume encyclopedia covers every major war, rebellion, and revolution from the third millennium BCE to the present. In three comprehensive volumes and approximately 2,000 A-to-Z entries, this definitive resource provides more thorough, complete coverage than any other encyclopedia. Each entry provides an at-a-glance look at the war in question and a narrative discussion of the war, examining its social context, major battles and events, and broader significance in cultural and historical terms.
