These world-famous battles span the course of modern military history, from the battle of Yorktown, which decided the result of the American Revolution, and the siege of Vicksburg through to the greatest tank battles ever fought, at El Alamein and Kursk, and Hitler's last offensive in the Ardennes. The continuity of tactics and strategy between these modern battles and those of Hannibal, Napoleon and Frederick the Great is brought out in the author's brilliant descriptive and critical analysis. There are over 380 illustrations, appearing in both colour and black and white, including maps, diagrams and technical drawings.show more
