Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The impact of World War II opened the door for weak and impoverished nations to develop military means of defeating modern armies. In China, Korea, Vietnam, Palestine, Cuba, Ireland, Africa, and the former Soviet Union, where battles still rage today-indeed, all over the globe-impassioned revolutions, marked by irregular warfare, guerilla insurgency, and terrorism, turned nations upside down in the name of liberation.

A chronology and biographies of crucial figures clarifies the lines leading backward to the prewar era.
