Cole offers an in-depth examination of its organizational structure and demonstrates how the department responded to the pressures of war over an extended period of time.

About the Series

This series focuses on works which integrate analysis of military operations and combat into wider social and cultural analysis, and which examine warfare as more than a European phenomenon. It covers the period from the early modern era and its military revolution to the end of the twentieth century.
