Overview
Este libro presenta todo desarrollo de la guerra, el uso de armas, la tecnología militar y su evolución táctica y estratégica desde la Prehistoria hasta el siglo XV. Tomando como punto de partida el enfrentamiento entre grupos de homínidos o los rastros de combates hallados en las pinturas rupestres, se analiza la evolución de los ejércitos y el desarrollo social desde la perspectiva bélica hasta llegar al uso de las primeras armas de fuego.
