Wars and Peace Treaties, 1816-1991
Wars and Peace Treaties provides a guide to over 100 nineteenth- and twentieth- century wars and their settlement. Each account considers the deeper origins of the conflict as well as the immediate occasion for the outbreak of hostilities, the course of the fighting, and the terms of the political settlement. Organized geographically and topically, the work covers wars from 1816 to 1991 - from Post-Napoleonic Revolutionary Wars, to the two World Wars, Wars in the Middle East, Post-Independence African Wars and conflicts in South America.
The book, which includes maps, appendices, chronology, and an extensive bibliography, will become an essential reference work for students, specialists, and general readers interested in military history, politics, and international affairs.
