Description

Victory at all costs - that was the goal of the armies whose riveting stories unfold here. Classic examples of battlefield successes achieved by poorly armed and positioned forces reveal how bravery, determination, and sheer willpower can win the day.

Go into the valleys of death at Balaclava in the 1800s, where the Light Brigade was destroyed - but the threat to Britain's supply lines stanched; to Gettysburg, where the persistence of just a few men, for just a few extra minutes, made all the difference; to Arras, where the Allies succeeded in smashing through Rommel's troops; and to 8 other incredible battles. You'll savor every one of these tales of derring-do, spanning over 225 years of history and illustrated with photos and maps.
