Summary
Since war is among the oldest of human activities - long antedating the intervention of writing - presumably the earliest attempts to record it took the form of poems or songs that were performed on suitable occasions. However revealing or inspiring, poems are no substitute for military theory and written history. 'The Encyclopedia of Warfare' concentrates on a systematic listing of all wars, offering an understanding in the nature of the ways in which they were fought and presenting the reader with a survey of the development of military thought and actions
