Summary

From the depths of the Cold War to the War on Terror, The Routledge Companion to Military Conflict since 1945 is an in-depth and comprehensive reference guide to the confrontations that have shaped the modern age.

Covering the personalities, the wars and the ideas that have been central to military conflict in the last sixty years, this book includes discussion of:

  • specific campaigns from Vietnam to Iraq
  • international organizations, including NATO, the UN and the Arab League
  • leading historical figures, from Idi Amin to George W. Bush
  • genocides, Proxy wars and the Guerrilla campaigns
  • key concepts in international relations, from Defense to Chemical Warfare
  • the causes of conflict from the religion to the fight for diminishing resources.

Exploring all of this and more in an easy to use A-Z format with guides to further reading, this is an essential resource for students of international relations, military history and conflict and strategic studies at all levels.
