||"This cogent book traces the history of land warfare since the start of the Crimean War in 1853. Although it has always been critical to the outcome of conflicts worldwide, land warfare has become mistakenly undervalued in modern military thinking. Ultimately, Black contends, there is no substitute for the control provided by boots on the ground."--Provided by publisher.
