Near Fine/Very Good. 8vo-over 7¾"-9¾" tall 1853671002 Hardback This volume (378-1278 AD) traces the transition from Roman to Mediavel forms in warfare, as the focus of power passed from the infantry to the cavalry. Each section deals with the characteristic stratgey, tactics and military organisation of a period, and is illustrated by detailed accounts of typical battles and campaigns. This volume is an essential work for all those who want to see how the art of warfare evolved from the might of the Roman army and for all those interested in an age when warfare was a daily fact of life, rather than a last resort. Sir Charles Oman's outstanding work provides a breathtaking and vivid insight into the evolution of war.
