  • - Slagmarkens forvandling fra 1. Verdenskrig til Irak
    af Martin Van Creveld
    223,95 kr.

    Spændende beretning om krigens hæsblæsende og uhyggelige forvandling igennem de seneste hundrede år. På én gang et fængslende stykke historie og et øjenåbnende kig dybt ind i de konflikter, der præger verden i dag. Vi følger med fra Flanderns skyttegrave og Normandiets strande - over Mellemøstens ørkenkrige, Koreakrigens kolde bjerge og Vietnams jungle - helt frem til Sydlibanon og Bagdad, hvor moderne hære kæmper en ofte forgæves kamp mod guerilla- og terrorgrupper. Vi kommer tæt på krigens hoved- og bipersoner og ind i tekniske nyskabelser som panserkøretøjer og ubåde sammen med de svedende mandskaber - og oplever både slagmarkens voldsomme forandring og den moderne krigs lidelser. Martin van Creveld er en af verdens førende militærhistorikere. Han giver et enestående overblik over et århundredes krigshistorie og en mængde detaljerige dyk ned i dramatiske enkeltbegivenheder frem til i dag. Illustreret

  • - From Gladiators to Gigabytes
    af Martin Van Creveld
    162,95 - 800,95 kr.

    Where did wargames come from? Who participated in them, and why? How is their development related to changes in real-life warfare? Which aspects of war did they capture, which ones did they leave out, how, and why? What do they tell us about the conduct of war in the times and places where they were played? How useful are they in training and preparation for war? Why are some so much more popular than others, and how do men and women differ in their interest? Starting with the combat of David versus Goliath, passing through the gladiatorial games, tournaments, trials by battle, duels, and board games such as chess, all the way to the latest simulations and computer games, this unique book traces the subject in all its splendid richness. As it does so, it provides new and occasionally surprising insights into human nature.

    The state, which since the middle of the seventeenth century has been the most important and most characteristic of all modern institutions, is in decline. From Western Europe to Africa, many existing states are either combining into larger communities or falling apart. Many of their functions are being taken over by a variety of organizations which, whatever their precise nature, are not states. In this unique volume Martin van Creveld traces the story of the state from its beginnings to the present. Starting with the simplest political organizations that ever existed, he guides the reader through the origins of the state, its development, its apotheosis during the two World Wars, and its spread from its original home in Western Europe to cover the globe. In doing so, he provides a fascinating history of government from its origins to the present day.

    Adolf Hitler ist tot - nach seinem Selbstmord im Fuhrerbunker unter der Reichskanzlei findet sich der Diktator in der Holle wieder. Doch anstelle von Damonen und Fegefeuer erwartet ihn ein ruhiger, zu ruhiger, ganzlich eintoniger Ort, der stark an die Gefangniszelle in Landsberg 1924 erinnert. Nun allerdings kann er keinen Besuch mehr empfangen, und auch seine treue Blondi hat ihn verlassen, denn alle Hunde kommen in den Himmel. Es gibt rein gar nichts zu tun, und so beginnt der "e;Fhrer"e;, ber sein Leben zu plaudern - vor dem Hintergrund der Welt, wie wir sie heute kennen. Er trumpft auf, lt die Hhepunkte der "e;Kampfzeit"e; und des Dritten Reichs noch einmal Revue passieren, zeigt keinerlei Reue und zahlt seinen damaligen und heutigen Feinden postum alles heim. In der Hlle kommt Adolf Hitler endlich dazu, alle Karten auf den Tisch zu legen und seine ganz eigene Geschichte des 20. Jahrhunderts zu erzhlen.

    Vom Wesen des KriegesDer Krieg hat seine eigene kulturelle Welt hervorgebracht: Trotz aller technischen Entwicklungen im Lauf der Geschichte ist sein Wesen gleich geblieben. Der bekannte israelische Militrhistoriker Martin van Creveld sieht im Krieg eine Konstante menschlichen Verhaltens. Kriegslose Zeiten, so seine berzeugung, werde es niemals geben. Seit der europischen Aufklrung wurde der Krieg als bloe Weiterfhrung der Politik mit anderen Mitteln, also als Verfolgung von im Wesentlichen rationalen politischen Zielen angesehen. Genau dieser Ansicht stellt sich van Creveld entgegen. Die Wurzeln des Krieges sind allgemeinmenschliche - vor allem psychologische - und daher bleiben die anthropologischen Konstanten des Krieges im Wesentlichen immer gleich - trotz aller Vernderungen der Waffen, Taktik, Ausrstung und des zivilisatorischen Standes. Er hat eine ganz eigene kulturelle Welt hervorgebracht, mit besonderen Regeln, Bruchen, Uniformen, Paraden, Ehrenkodices, die heute weitgehend als irrational und archaisch abgelehnt werden. Wenn sie aber aus allgemeinmenschlichen Konstanten herrhren, werden sie auch in Zukunft Gltigkeit behalten. Von der Kriegsbemalung zu den Tarnanzgen, von Bumerangs zu Bastionen: Menschliches Verhalten im Krieg bleibt gleich - vom Kriegsgeschrei am Beginn bis zu den Mglichkeiten und Optionen zur Beendigung eines Krieges. In weiteren Kapiteln widmet sich der Autor dem Verhltnis von Geschichte und Krieg, der Spiegelung des Krieges in Literatur, Kunst und Denkmlern und schlielich der Frage, wie der Krieg - und der Friede - der Zukunft aussehen knnte.

    'War is the most important thing in the world', writes Martin van Creveld, one of the world's best-known experts on military history and strategy. The survival of every country, government, and individual is ultimately dependent on war - or the ability to wage it in self-defence. That is why, though it may come but once in a hundred years, it must be prepared for every day. When it is too late-when the bodies lie stiff and people weep over them-those in charge have failed in their duty. Nevertheless, in spite of the centrality of war to human history and culture, there has for long been no modern attempt to provide a replacement for the classics on war and strategy, Sun Tzu's The Art of War, dating from the 5th or 6th century BC, and Carl von Clausewitz's On War, written in the aftermath of the Napoleonic Wars. What is needed is a modern, comprehensive, easy to read and understand theory of war for the 21st century that could serve as a replacement for these classic texts. The purpose of the present book is to provide just such a theory.

    At a time when unprecedented change in international affairs is forcing governments, citizens, and armed forces everywhere to re-assess the question of whether military solutions to political problems are possible any longer, Martin van Creveld has written an audacious searching examination of the nature of war and of its radical transformation in our own time. For 200 years, military theory and strategy have been guided by the Clausewitzian assumption that war is rational - a reflection of national interest and an extension of politics by other means. However, van Creveld argues, the overwhelming pattern of conflict in the post-1945 world no longer yields fully to rational analysis. In fact, strategic planning based on such calculations is, and will continue to be, unrelated to current realities. Small-scale military eruptions around the globe have demonstrated new forms of warfare with a different cast of characters - guerilla armies, terrorists, and bandits - pursuing diverse goals by violent means with the most primitive to the most sophisticated weapons. Although these warriors and their tactics testify to the end of conventional war as we've known it, the public and the military in the developed world continue to contemplate organized violence as conflict between the super powers. At this moment, armed conflicts of the type van Creveld describes are occurring throughout the world. From Lebanon to Cambodia, from Sri Lanka and the Philippines to El Salvador, the Persian Gulf, and the strife-torn nations of Eastern Europe, violent confrontations confirm a new model of warfare in which tribal, ethnic, and religious factions do battle without high-tech weapons or state-supported armies and resources. This low-intensity conflict challenges existing distinctions between civilian and solder, individual crime and organized violence, terrorism and war. In the present global atmosphere, practices that for three centuries have been considered uncivilized, such as capturing civilians or even entire communities for ransom, have begun to reappear. Pursuing bold and provocative paths of inquiry, van Creveld posits the inadequacies of our most basic ideas as to who fights wars and why and broaches the inevitability of man's need to "e;play"e; at war. In turn brilliant and infuriating, this challenge to our thinking and planning current and future military encounters is one of the most important books on war we are likely to read in our lifetime.

    Martin van Creveld's Moshe Dayan tells the story of one man and of one people, to whom he was a figurehead - a symbol of their patriotism and their determination to survive. Born in a kibbutz in 1915, Dayan joined the Hagana when he was just fourteen, thus starting early a military career that saw him serve in every war fought in the Middle East from the War of Israeli Independence in 1948 to the Yom Kippur War of 1973. Twice he led his country's forces into smashing victories. Having planned and executed the one and directed the other, with his one eye he towers over them like Nelson over the Battle of Trafalgar.Skilled in battle, skilled in diplomacy, like many powerful public figures, Moshe Dayan's private life was far from mundane. The book quotes from little-known sources, including an account written by one of his mistresses, that reveal much about his character and his life away from the battlefield. This is an honest portrayal of both the private and the public figure, which seeks to understand a man whose contribution to the state of Israel in its developing years was immeasurable.
