Über diesen Titel

Inhaltsangabe:

Beginning with the British conquest of Egypt, the subjugation of a leading non-Western state, the book goes on to examine the Spanish-American War of 1898, the Boer War and the Balklands conflicts leading to world war in 1914. A revisonist account of World War I is followed by a discussion of Western expansionism in the period to 1936. Chapters on the interwar years and World War II leads on to a discussion of the retreat from empire and the advent of Cold War. The narrative closes with the end of the Vietnam War in 1975 and a discussion of the limitations of Western military technique, doctrine and technology.
