About the book
Featuring an introduction by award-winning CNN anchor Wolf Blitzer, this important volume chronicles the major battles of the twentieth-century. Organized chronologically, it begins with the Anglo-Boer War and ends with the Balkan War, with chapters focusing on World War I, World War II, The Korean War, Vietnam, and the Gulf War as well as the conflicts that may have faded a bit from recent memory, but were no less significant. Throughout the book, dramatic photographs in both color and black and white depict the heartbreak and mayhem caused by each of these life-changing events, as well as the triumphs and victories. From panoramas of war-torn landscapes to close-ups of ravaged faces, from the exhaustion brought on by endless nights endured in foxholes to fleeting moments of humanity as soldiers hand out provisions to the inhabitants of villages ruined by war, the images in this volume are unforgettable. Packed with more than 500 pictures accompanying the authoritative text, this book belongs in the library of all history buffs and military enthusiasts.
