History’s Greatest Battles: Masterstrokes of War

History’s Greatest Battles covers the gamut of warfare, from huge sea battles to single engagements where regiments dug in and fought on long past the time for surrender. Chronologically organised for ease of reference, starting with the Battle if Marathon in 490BC and taking the reader up to modern times, all the great battles in this book are pivotal in history and were won by inspired leaders such as Alexander the Great, Julius Caesar, Napoleon, Nelson, Washington and Grant. Includes an eight-page plate section of photographs.
