Jeremy Black, internationally known military historian and Professor of History at the University of Exeter, is the author of The Cold War: A Military History, Rethinking World War Two: The Conflict and its Legacy and Metropolis, among many others. He is also a keen writer on maps and their history. This book brings together his two main interests.

Strongly recommended. * Firetrench * These numerous, diverse and beautiful maps alone justify adding Maps of War to a personal collection. * Spectrum Culture (US) *
