Why have Western Values Triumphed? Why are Western ideas and practices spreading unopposed throughout the globe? In this sweeping and ambitious work of military and cultural history, Victor Davis Hanson convincingly argues that it all comes down to the western Knack for killing with his trademark zest for bringing the Gritty realties of battle to life Hanson Vividly re-creates nine Important confrontations between western and non-western armies, from the stunning Greek Victory at salamis in 480 B.c. to Cortes`s conquest of Mexico city in 1521 to the Grueling urban warfare of Vietnam`s Tet Offensive. But Hanson Goes beyond the conventions of the "guns and Trumpets" Genre to veal the cultural underpinnings that determined the course and consequences of each engagement an dint eh process advances a provocative thesis about eh reasons for Western global dominance.
