About the Authors
  • The Cambridge Illustrated Atlas of Warfare: Renaissance to Revolution provides a thorough introduction to the military and naval history of the years 1492 to 1792, covering the period from the European Renaissance to the revolutionary wars of the late eighteenth century. Detailed colour maps, battle plans, and colour and black-and-white illustrations combine with an authoritative text to illuminate developments in warfare on both land and sea. Particular attention is paid to the effects of European military expansion on the rest of the world including the Americas, Africa, Asia, and the Mediterranean. Special feature panels are devoted to key events, to the more complicated and intriguing military confrontations, to individual tacticians and to the key topics such as weapons, battle strategies, the rise of naval warfare, and the composition of armies. The book is written by a leading historian of the early modern period.

    • Highly illustrated in colour throughout, with maps, battle-plans, features, and panels
    • Unique in its scope and treatment
    • Lively text, written by UK's youngest professor of history

    'Jeremy Black has assembled a most complex mass of information into an easily read narrative, a considerable feat. Equal praise, too, to the production team, especially those responsible for some of the best maps and battle plans I have ever seen.' The School Librarian
