    Book details


Wars of the 20th Century: 20 Wars That Shaped The Present World brings together twenty wars from the previous century into one convenient, easy-to-read collection. Fully explored are the following wars: Cambodian Civil War, Vietnamese Invasion of Cambodia, Chinese Civil War, Landing Operation on Hainan Island, Anglo-Afghan War of 1919, 1947-1948 Civil War in Palestine, 1948 Arab-Israeli War, Bosnian War, Kosovo War, Nagorno-Karabakh War, First Congo War, Second Congo War, Angolan War of Independence, Angolan Civil War, United States Occupation of Nicaragua 1912-1933, Nicaraguan Revolution (1961-1979) and Counter-Revolution (1981-1990), Football War, Dirty War, Chaco War, and 1932 Salvadoran Peasant Uprising. Various types of wars are represented, e.g. independence wars, civil wars, revolutions, counter-revolutions, political/ideological wars, border/territorial wars, ethnic/sectarian wars, etc., as are wars from the major continents, i.e. Europe, Asia, Africa, and the Americas. Each of the war is treated as a separate article, constituting a “chapter”, and begins with an explanatory “Background” to the war before proceeding to the combat phase(s), “War”. No preliminary knowledge of the wars is assumed; each stand-alone narrative uses plain, non-technical language and basic maps to convey the causes, fighting stage(s), results, and consequences of the wars. Wars of the 20th Century: 20 Wars That Shaped The Present World was written for the general readership, and purposed to be used as a casual read or a convenient source of information on a particular country’s military history.

Daniel has taught undergraduate university courses and has done research studies in the natural sciences. His other great passion is writing fiction and non-fiction. He lives in Vancouver, British Columbia in Canada.

Review Text

  • By Brigid Lawrence on July 7, 2014

    A nice little book about some of the small wars of the twentieth century,the only problem I have is that the author needs to proofread the book better to get dates right, example is in the chapter on Angola where the Portuguese are still there in 1996.
