When gunpowder replaced steel as the weapon of choice, soldiers had to adapt or die. In Fighting Techniques of the Early Modern World, five military experts explore the tactics and strategy required to win battles with the technology available, and describe how the development of new weapons changed the face of warfare. Using specially-commissioned color and black and white artworks to illustrate the battles, equipment and tactics of the era, Fighting Techniques of the Early Modern World shows in detail the methods by which armies gained and lost ascendency on the battlefield.
