Spanning two and a half thousand years of warfare, from Salamis, where the Greeks put an end to Persian attempts to overwhelm their country, through the Battle of Hastings and the fall of Constantinople to the key engagements in the World Wars: Midway, El Alamein and Stalingrad right up to Operation Desert Storm, Battles that Changed History is a stimulating and lively account of fifty decisive battles that, either as a result of victory or defeat, have had a long-term impact on the course of world history. With the aid of numerous maps and illustrations military expert Geoffrey Regan not only examines the background and consequences of each battle, but also vividly re-creates the actual fighting, analyses the tactics and profiles key commanders and weaponry. Battles that Changed History provides an informative look at the military engagements that have shaped the modern world and will appeal to both the military history enthusiast and the general reader alike.
