Battles That Changed History

Author(s): Geoffrey Regan


"Battles that Changed History" is a stimulating and lively account of 50 decisive battles that, either as a result of victory or defeat, have had a long-term impact on the course of world history. Meticulously researched and written in a concise and engaging manner, military expert Geoffrey Regan looks back over 2,500 years of warfare between bitter rivals, from the Greeks and the Persians, to Saddam Hussein and the might of the US military, via the Siege of Constantinople, the Spanish Armada, the Battle of Poltava, the Battle of the Marne, the Battle of Stalingrad and many more. With the aid of numerous maps and illustrations, historian Geoffrey Regan not only examines the background and consequences of each battle, but also vividly re-creates the intense fighting, analyses the tactics and profiles key commanders and weaponry used.
