The World's Armed Forces Series


Between ancient times and the present day, various branches of armed forces—armies, navies, marine corps, and air forces—have evolved to meet the needs of leaders and countries the world over. From Sumerian battles to more recent global conflicts—the Afghanistan and Iraq wars, for example—the role of armed forces has grown alongside the emergence of more advanced technology and transportation. These detailed volumes examine the organization and historical development of the various branches of armed forces across the globe, as well as the roles they have played in major world events.
