Marathon, Hastings, Midway -- just a few of the major battles covered in this series, which introduces readers to the wartime engagements that changed the course of human history. Each book gives a historical account of a decisive battle -- its participants, the political climate leading to the engagement, and the deciding factors that ultimately led to a victory or defeat. The former capital of the Aztec Empire, this city of floating gardens and aqueducts was destroyed by the Spanish in 1521, and Mexico City was built on its ruins.
