Description
The consequences of war may not be evident until long after the smoke of battle has cleared; indeed, the true significance of triumph or defeat may remain obscured for years, even centuries. Illustrated with more than 80 historical maps, archival photos, and period artworks, this history from the author of Miracle at Belleau Wood: The Birth of the Modern U.S. Marines crosses the globe to highlight the enduring influence of 18 such overlooked yet hugely effective wars, from Queen Boudicca's revolt against Rome in 1st-century Britain to the Mau Mau uprising against the British in Kenya in the 1950s.

"The author ... takes the reader on a fascinating tour that includes what he calls the 'first Holocaust', the battle when Simon bar Kokhba initiated a rebellion against Rome, triggering a response that cost the lives of many Jews living in Israel from 132-135 BC. Other wars cited include the first wars of terror, the Barbary pirates versus the United States, and the Meji Rebellion in Japan. There are many interesting chapters that recount wars that often are not taught in schools and colleges, but which shaped history, ancient and modern."Bookviews
