Summary: From David and Goliath in biblical times to the recent military actions in Iraq, great battles have an enormous impact on the shaping of history. Now, in this beautifully illustrated reference work, one hundred of the world's most important military confrontations from 1469 BC to 1991 are described in detail. 100 Decisive Battles gives us not only the cold, hard facts about each battle but also their historical context. Each entry provides the name and date of the ...show morebattle, the commanders, the size of their forces, and their casualties. A description of the battle plan and the military action are carefully discussed, and each description closes with a valuable consideration of how history was affected by the outcome of the conflict. Among the battles presented are the Battle of Thymbra (546 BC), the Battle of Chalons (451 AD), the Battle of Cajamarca (1532), the Battle of Dien Bien Phu (1954), and the Tet Offensive (1968).
