From the Battle of Actium to Zhukov, this is a wide-ranging, international reference book of new military history. It deals with the people, battles, campaigns, wars, countries, weapons and institutions which have fundamentally affected the nature and development of warfare. The book has a particular concern with civil-military relations and the role of armed forces in society. Its principal strength lies in the broad, thematic entries which synthesize modern interpretations of the history of such topics as naval and air warfare, strategy, pensions, mobilization, recruitment, losses of life, economic warfare, military families, and chemical and biological warfare.Originally published in French under the title "Dictionnaire d'art et d'histoire militaires", the new English version has been completely revised and updated. Additional entries and new material have increased its length by over 20 per cent. All entries now carry full lists of recommended reading drawn from the latest literature. In addition to the expansion of the original articles, many biographical entries have been added, as well as accounts of campaigns and battles. From the Hittites and Assyrians to the Gulf War, the Dictionary presents a broad coverage of military history for students, scholars, specialists and general readers.

It has always been man's dream to fly. In this book we meet the brave pioneers of the skies who have made that dream come true. John Damian, The Flying Priest, was one of the first men to attempt to fly when he jumped off a Scottish castle in 1506. The Wright Brothers achieved what many before them had failed to do, and became the first men to fly an airplane in 1903. The Red Baron, Manfred von Richthofen, was a daredevil pilot who ruled the skies over Germany and France in World War One. Charles Lindbergh was a fearless aviator who became the first man to fly across the Atlantic Ocean. Amelia Earhart fulfilled her dream of being the first woman to attempt to fly around the world, but at what cost? Felix Baumgartner reminded us that you don't always need a plane to fly when he jumped from space in 2012.
