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 January 1968 launch of military attacks by Communist North Vietnam on South Vietnam's major cities forced U.S. Marines to defend the U.S. embassy in Saigon.
