Fighting Techniques of the Imperial Age/Colonial World

Fighting Techniques of the Imperial Age describes the fighting techniques of armies from the beginning of the American War of Independence (1776) through to the imperial clashes that preceded World War I. The book explores the tactics and strategy required to win battles in a period when often opponents were either heavily mismatched in technology or employed entirely different strategies and tactics to outwit each other. Campaigns covered include the American War of Independence, the Mexican War, the American Indian Wars, the Zulu War (1879), the Sudan campaign (1896–98), the Italo-Abyssinian campaign (1896), the Boer War (1899–1901) and the Boxer Rebellion. Using specially-commissioned colour and black-and-white artworks to illustrate the battles, equipment and tactics of the era, Fighting Techniques of the Imperial Age shows in detail the methods by which armies gained and lost ascendancy on the battlefield.

The book has also been published under the title: Fighting Techniques of the Colonial World
