Russell F. Weigley - The Age of Battles (2nd Hand Hardback)
ISBN / GTIN-13 : 9780253363800
Subtitled : The Quest for Decisive Warfare from Breitenfeld to Waterloo.
This book is both a survey of military history in Europe from the Thirty Years War to the Napoleonic Wars and an analysis on the futility of war. I think it excels in both aspects. Weigley goes to great detail in discussing the numerous wars and campaigns that occur over this stretch of nearly two centuries.

"What Russell F. Weigley writes, the rest of us read. The Age of Battles is a persuasive reminder that even in the age of 'rational' warfare, one can honestly wonder why war seemed an unavoidable policy choice." - Allan R. Millett, The Journal of American History.
"One of the most interesting, important, and ambitious books about the conduct, and perhaps the ultimate futility, of war." - Gunther E. Rothenberg.
"A highly scholarly and wonderfully absorbing study." - John Bayley, The London Review of Books.
The AuthorRussell Frank Weigley was the Distinguished University Professor of History at Temple University in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, and a noted military historian. His research and teaching interests centred on American and world military history, World War II, and the American Civil War.
