This month, three lucky winners have the chance to win a copy of The Military History of China.

In The Military History of China, bestselling author Erik Durschmied traces China’s passage through
a thousand years of war, colonial adventurism, and internecine politics, and seeks to understand
what this huge and unstoppable country is today – as well as what the future holds now that China
has become the latest economic and military superpower.

Long the most populous country in the world, China has always flexed its muscles beyond its borders, for all its contemplative religion and dreamlike art. Catastrophic clashes with other countries are a thread woven into the fabric of the nation’s history.

Today China stands on the threshold of global economic domination, a true rival to the United States; in a generation or so, it will be twice as wealthy as
the US, Britain, Germany, France, and Italy combined. Durschmied’s history is a compelling read.

Erik Durschmied’s The Military History of China is published by André Deutsch. It is available in hardback for £16.99, from
