Atlas of the Week 4 (September 30- October 6)- Atlas of Global Strategy (1985)

The Atlas of Global Strategy; War and Peace in the Nuclear Age by Lawrence Freedman is a great atlas to check out as it is a perfect segue into the Post World War II theme we will be studying in class. This atlas encompasses the time period after WWII, up until the near end to the Cold War, covering such items as nuclear mapping, patterns of warfare, and military strategy. With growing technology and weapons that carried increased damage, the world was forced to rethink conventional fighting methods and reform mapping techniques to suit the geo-political forces that were dominating the globe.
