The battles in this book cover a relatively brief space in the story of mankind. The earliest is the decisive sea Battle of Tsushima in 1905. The latest, curiously enough, is Vietnam. 'Curiously enough' because one would have been justified in thinking that the operation of the Super-fortress Enola Gay at Hiroshima on 6 August 1945 might have proved the last great 'battle' of the World. It seems, however, that atomic warfare was rather too efficient for the military profession and its political employers.
