Overview

A worthy addition to any history buff’s shelf, this visually arresting volume has a commanding grasp of more than 4,500 years of military history. On the eve of the 150th anniversary of the start of the American Civil War comes this latest addition to the 1001 series. It includes the seminal details about key battles that changed the course of history and shaped the political and cultural landscapes of our world—from the Battle of Troy and the Siege of Antioch to Gettysburg, Iwo Jima, and up to the present with battles of the Iraq War. 1001 Battles That Changed the Course of World History traces 4,500 years of armed conflict, from the small-scale battles of the ancient world (involving only a few hundred foot soldiers) to the epic military engagements of the American Civil War, the devastating world wars, and the smaller military actions of today. Military history from throughout the world is included, from the Mongols’ exploits in the Far East to the dramatic Spanish conquest of the Incas, and from the Boer War in South Africa to America’s engagements in Vietnam and Korea. Each entry describes the battle in full detail, including tactical moves, strategy, and military or technological breakthroughs, and reveals the part it played in the larger war or campaign as well as its wider political and social impact on society and history. The book is illustrated throughout with battle plans and maps, detail-rich medieval tapestries, dramatic commemorative paintings, and evocative photographs.

    Offensive

    Because this book uses B.C.E. & C.E. instead of B.C. & A.D.; it offends me as a Christian, as it is evidently designed to do. The Christian world has given us the calendar we use every day; to pretend otherwise with a politically-correct artifice, misrepresents history and insults the reader's intelligence.
