Great Battles introduces 30 major battles from the Ancient era to the present day. Beginning with the battle of Marathon (490 BC), where a combined force of Greeks defeated a much larger Persian invasion force, the book covers key battles right up to the 2003 invasion of Iraq by U.S. led coalition forces. Each battle includes a concise account of the action, with a broader introductory context and an analysis of the aftermath. A specially commissioned colour map illustrating the dispositions and movement of forces brings the subject to life and helps the reader easily grasp the decisive points of the battle. Including more than 250 colour and black-and-white photographs, artworks and maps illustrating the battles, leading figures and tactics of the era, Great Battles offers an information packed introduction to some of the best-known battles in military history. Designed for both the general reader and enthusiast, the book is an essential companion for anyone interested in the history of warfare. About the General Editor Christer Jorgensen graduated with a Ph.D from University College, London. An expert on military history, Christer has published various books on the history of European warfare. He is based in Stockholm, Sweden.
