About this item

Lepage traces the military use of railways from the 1830s to the Cold War, considering all aspects of military trains, including transport and logistics, rail-borne artillery, armored trains, and draisines. He describes key battles and outcomes of each war, and pays special attention to the use of railways in colonial wars in Africa and Asia as well as to rolling stock, materials and equipment, uniforms, and weapons. He covers early military use of railroads from the Crimean War (1853-56) through the Russo-Turkish War (1877-78) to the Russo-Japanese War (1904-05), railroads by various belligerents in World War I, interwar military railroads, railroads by Axis Powers and Allies during World War II, and the post-1945 military use of railroads.
