Trabajo realizado por 25 historiadores de diferente perfil y fama, editado por Black, que también participa, y dedicado al repaso de setenta batallas (en realidad no todas batallas propiamente dichas sino operaciones de mayor envergadura que implicaron varias batallas o enfrentamientos) bastante famosas en general, ofreciendo un breve resumen de la situación que llevó al suceso, su desarrollo, sus conclusiones y [...]

      My father bought this for me from a coworker who received it by mistake from her book club.This book is a good general reference for someone who is interested in military history. I often look into it when I am reading Bernard Cornwell books.I would not necessarily recommend that anyone buy it, but it is work referencing in a library. In general is is a little too much of a "coffee table" book. I.e. too much gloss and not enough detail. I often find myself using it to get an overview of the batt [...]

      70 battles reviewed in very little detail. The Battle of Naseby for instance. Cromwells new model army won because they were more disciplined. Hurrah. And then there's the 'accuracy' element. The latest Iraq invasion where the CIA arranged for a crowd of Iraqi's to symbolically topple a statue of Saddam Hussein? In this book its something like 'the people, aided by the US military'. Poorly researched, misleading cock muffinary.

      Nothing new in the text, disagree with too many of the battles being in the top seventy in fact on a number of entries it states that the result of the battle was not decisive so how can they be considered for the top 70?Disapointing

    6. Paula on said:

      My only real complaint about this book was that the bombings of Japan were included. To me they just do not qualify as a "battle".Otherwise, this was a really good, but concise selection of some of the military highlights of history.
