Om udviklingen af de væbnede styrker i otte af verdens førende militære stater i fred og krig.

10 editions published between 1999 and 2000 in English and held by 208 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Bogens beskrivelse af Boerkrigen er udarbejdet af forfatteren i et samarbejde med the National Army Museum og baserer sig i hovedsagen på ikke udgivne dokumenter fra museets arkiver. Bogen er væsentlig for forståelsen af de militære aspekter af krigen og giver et godt indtryk af, hvorledes soldaternes tilværelse var under denne "rodede og unødvendige" krig. Den giver således detaljerede beretninger om begivenhederne på eskadrons-, kompagni- og batteriniveau og niveauet derunder.

Britain's army in the 20th century by Michael Carver( Book )

10 editions published between 1998 and 1999 in English and held by 147 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The story of the British army in the twentieth century has never before been told or analysed in a single volume. Michael Carver's authoritative and readable book begins in an era in which the virtues of the lance and sabre were still being advocated in competition with the new-fangled rifle. It ends in an era in which a lance corporal in Bosnia was fixing his position by satellite, and troops in the Gulf were being trained in how to deal with biological and chemical warfare. Between these two eras were the transforming experiences of two world wars, of new tactics and above all the continuing impact of new technology"--Jacket
Imperial War Museum book of the war in Italy, 1943-1945 : the campaign that tipped the balance in Europe by Michael Carver( Book )

3 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 135 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Allies fought the Germans in Italy from July 1943 to May 1945, in a campaign perhaps more reminiscent of the First World War. The terrain was difficult, the weather bitter, the adversaries fierce and in no way inferior in strength. As the author contends, the Allies felt they played "second fiddle to the cross-channel invasion that victory was not going to be won by them, and that their sacrifices and suffering were not essential to it and would not be appreciated." Had the Germans been able to deploy their forces in Italy against the D-Day landings and subsequent offensive, there could have been a very different situation in Northern Europe in 1944-45. The hard-fought campaign in Italy, so vividly portrayed in this book, probably made the difference."--Pub. desc

The Imperial War Museum book of the war in Italy, 1943-1945 : a vital contribution to victory in Europe by Michael Carver( Book )

3 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 51 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

De allieredes kamp mod tyske hær i Italien juli 1943 til maj 1945 kan opfattes som en reminiscens af 1.Verdenskrig med hensyn til klimatiske faktorer og den meget effektive modstand de allierede tropper mødte. Kampene i Italien medførte store tabstal på begge sider, men vurderes i det væsentligste at have haft indflydelse på de tyske styrkers reducerede kampkraft forud for de allieredes invasion i Normandiet i 1944
