Description
Analyzing not only some of the most significant conflicts ever fought but also their subsequent effects on history, James Lacey and Williamson Murray provide vital background for battles often seen out of context. Here are Adrianople, the last stand of the Roman Empire; the American militia's improbable 1777 victory over the British army at Saratoga; Admiral Nelson's triumph at Trafalgar, which ushered in a golden age for Great Britain; and the Russian defeat of German forces at Kursk, hastening the end of World War II. Each of these 20 battles is discussed individually in highly readable chapters, with the important participants vividly evoked and the critical incidents concisely described.

"[This book] is an exciting account of important battles in history from Marathon in 490 B.C. to Baghdad in 2003. Its authors are excellent military historians with personal experience in modern warfare and a command of the character of warfare throughout the ages. They write in clear and lively prose in a way that will capture the reader's interest even as they communicate their own learning and excitement with the subject."óDonald Kagan
