Asia@War

The ‘Asia@War ‘ series covers Asian military history of the last 80 years.

Local military services are continuously forced to understand the type of every new conflict in which they are engaged and to adapt as necessary, to learn their operational lessons and add them to their skills. Much too often, the armies in question were not only forced into operational environment under inacceptable political and social circumstances, and not only failed to understand the environment, but intentionally acted against the local population thus creating new enemies. Unsurprisingly, regardless of high-technology that was applied in many of wars in Asia of the last 70-100 years, the promise of fast and short conflicts regularly remained elusive. The result is that many of the wars on this continent are not only massive, but usually fought for decades.

Following the patterns set up by our four earlier @War series, the Asia@War replicates the same format to provide a series of in-depth, concentrated studies of conflicts and military forces on this continent. Always emphasising narratives that are placing the military history within its geo-political and socio-economic context, it is providing the story of the coming-into-being of armed forces and wars in question, while focusing on involved military organizations, their equipment, capabilities and intentions, strategy and tactics, and lessons learned.

Each volume is richly illustrated by original photographs, maps of relevant geographic areas and specific combat operations, and detailed colour profiles of heavy equipment deployed by all of involved parties.

Based on continuously increasing amounts of documentation unearthed from official archives, and narratives from participants and eyewitnesses, this series is thus providing a richly illustrated, unique, in-depth insights, and as such is presenting indispensable sources of reference.
