Editorial Reviews

..."Wawro has done well to master and compress much of the voluminous recent literature on the subject, an especially challenging task with regard to studies of the leading great powers...Wawro's own special expertise, which lies in the history of Austria-Hungary, adds an important further Central European dimension to the work.--Keith Jeffery, University of Ulster at Jordanstown.""Wawro, among the best of the new generations of military historians, has written the best extant survey of the long century of European military dominance that began in 1792 with the French Revolutionary Wars and ended in the trenches of 1914. His willingness to take an essentially chronological approach makes the work's paperback edition especially well suited as a primary text for military history courses and as a collateral reading for general courses in the period."-"Military History
