Changing Nature of Warfare 1918 - 2011
I have updated and written a first draft, which has been partially edited, and I hope to sell this as a book, and will be releasing this soon as possible. With a student book, teachers book and a bundle with the book and a large number of lessons.
This first draft will also be published and released on Amazon in the near future.
This book intends to give as much information as possible about the history of Warfare and relate it to the Igcse Edexcel exam board.
