Since the end of the Second World War the world has been gripped by smaller, more localised conflicts. Some of these have simply been conflicts that the Second World War failed to resolve, others have been a direct result of that war, as colonised peoples in Asia and Africa began to realise that their imperial masters were no longer invincible. In this book, Daniel Moran demonstrates all the ways in which wars have been fought over the past fifty years. He describes the peasant uprising that led to the revolution in China, the guerrilla warfare of Vietnam, and the use of terrorism in Palatine, Algeria and Ireland. And he goes on to account for the current wars that are raging around the peripheries of the former Soviet Union, all in the name of national liberation. Accompanied by 150 maps and illustrations, and extensive chronology and appendices, this is essential reading for anyone interested in the numerous bloody conflicts that have been waged around the world since the Second World War.Über den Autor:
