Publisher's Summary

The Dynamics of Military Revolution aims to bridge a major gap in the emerging literature on revolutions in military affairs, suggesting that there have been two very different phenomena at work over the past centuries: "military revolutions", which are driven by vast social and political changes; and "revolutions in military affairs", which military institutions have directed, although usually with great difficulty and ambiguous results. By providing both a conceptual framework and a historical context for thinking about revolutionary changes in military affairs, the work establishes a baseline for understanding the patterns of change, innovation, and adaptation that have marked war in the Western World since the 13th century - beginning with Edward III's revolutionary changes in medieval warfare, through the development of modern Western military institutions in 17th-century France, to the cataclysmic changes of the First World War and the German Blitzkrieg victories of 1940. This history provides a guide for thinking about military revolutions in the coming century, which are as inevitable as they are difficult to predict.

Interesting accent choices

So the main authors/editors of this collection are both American, however the narrator speaks with a British accent EXCEPT when he is quoting a historical figure who happens to be from the states when he switches into a very convincing American accent. Hearing this it just raises interesting questions why he renders the author’s words as British if he can do a convincing American accent.
