Throughout history, people have fought against people - for land, for wealth, for power or security. This book tells readers about the great wars from ancient times until the present day. The text is presented in the form of a chronological account of conflicts around the world in encyclopaedic articles, interspersed with major feature articles. The causes and effects of war are examined in the introduction, and the final chapter explores the prospects for the achievement and maintenance of peace. Among the major wars covered in detail are: the Punic Wars, from the third century BC; the Crusades and Hundred Years' War, from the Middle Ages; the inter-European wars of the 16th and 17th centuries, along with the violent struggles to colonize the New World; the American and French Revolutions; and the large-scale conflicts of the 20th century, both World Wars and also the Vietnam War. Data panels are included for easy reference.
