Warfare and Society in Europe, 1898 to the Present examines warfare
in Europe from the Fashoda conflict in modern-day Sudan to the
recent war in Iraq. The twentieth century was by far the world's
most destructive century with two global wars marking the first
half of the century and the constant fear of nuclear annihilation
haunting the second half. Throughout, this book treats warfare as a
function of larger political, cultural, social and economic issues
and includes discussion of: the alliances that led to the outbreak
of the First World War; the First World War; the Second World War;
the increasing role played by the United States in Europe's
twentieth century wars; Eastern European wars such as the Russian
Civil War and the Greco-Turkish war; new technologies and weapons.
Combining a traditional survey of military history with a survey of
social issues, Michael S. Neiberg both examines how social changes
have impacted the nature of war fighting and how war has shaped the
basic patterns of European society.
