A Global Survey of Modern Warfare, from the First Fervid Days of the French Revolution of 1789 to the Bloody Stalemate that Ended the Iran-Iraq War in 1988 In the modern era, warfare entered a new phase.
Technological innovation yielded evermore destructive weaponry, international communications and alliances greatly extended the reach of conflicts, and military strategists increasingly targeted infrastructure and civilians, while new media—first photography, then film and television—conveyed the horror and brutality of industrialized combat to those who had the good fortune to live beyond the battle zones.

...<b>The Raiders.</b>, Garrett, Richard
7 Garrett, Richard ...The Raiders.
Florence, Kentucky: Van Nostrand Reinhold, 1980. 0442258739 / 9780442258733 First Edition; First Printing; Full Number Line; Hardcover in Jacket.
 
No Flaws or Blemishes; Gift Quality, Dust jacket in protective Mylar sleeve.
During World War II the British Commandos and the United States Rangers brought the art of combined operations and of the sudden, lightning strike upon the enemy to a level of organisation never reached in any previous war. But the Commandos and the Rangers were the inheritors of a long tradition; the history of strike forces made up of highly trained, highly professional crack troops is as old as that of war itself. In "The Raiders" Richard Garrett tells the stories of some of the most exciting of the raids carried out by these more-or-less irregular strike forces - raids which have often had an effect upon the course of war out of all proportion to the numbers of men involved - and provides linking commentaries that put each raid in perspective and add up to a concise history of this little-studied branch of warfare.

This book will be looked upon as a model for the presentation of a well-evidenced argument on the nature of U.S. foreign relations with Lebanon, and more generally, with the Middle East. -- Richard Falk Princeton University

“The 1983 bombing of the U.S. Marine Beirut compound and of the nearby French paratroopers’ building was a declaration of war by radical Islamists against Western influence in the Middle East. It marked the beginning of an asymmetrical war, one that continues to this day.

The Marines in Lebanon, under the command of Col. Tim Geraghty, realized the magnitude of the challenge and the seriousness of the dangers this meant to the security of the free world. Yet it took the politicians in Washington 18 more years to reach the same conclusions.
