Description

A single day in the heat of armed conflict can shape the future of the world. Throughout history, individual battles have inspired the birth of nations, the devastation of cultures and the triumph of revolutions. Yet while some battles rise up as the cornerstones of history, others fade in our cultural memory, forgotten as minor skirmishes. Why is this so? What makes a battle “important”?
Celebrated veteran and military expert Michael Lee Lanning offers a provocative response with The Battle 100: The Stories Behind History’s Most Influential Battles. Lanning ranks history’s 100 greatest battles according to their influence, both immediate and long-term. Thought-provoking and controversial, Lanning’s rankings take us to the heart of the battles and reveal their true greatness.
