KIRKUS REVIEW

A history of mass armies, the ""origin, survival, culmination and recent decline of the mass army... which has so evilly transformed warfare during the last 150 years"". From its rare appearances before the French Revolution, to its working conception as those democrats created it, to the present day, and the down curve of wholesale bloodshed as these wars are fought. A very specialized book, a curiosity for the serious student of special phases of warfare.
