Major General J. F. C. Fuller, a pioneer of mechanized warfare in Great
Britain, was one of this century’s most renowned military strategists
and historians. In this magisterial work he spans military history from
the Greeks to the end of World War II, describing tactics, battle
lines, the day-to-day struggles while always relating affairs on the
field to the larger questions of social, political, and economic change
in Western civilization. A masterpiece of scholarship and biting
prose, these volumes are available for the first time in a handsome
trade paperback edition. This third volume outlines the age of industrialism and the rise of American imperialism, the Civil War, expansionist policies of Japan and Russia, and World Wars I and II, offering fresh insights into the relationship between military history and social change.
