From ancient times, Europe has been shaped and re-shaped by military campaigns involving more than 2,000 battles. With the help of a team of eminent contributors, David Chandler has assembled a comprehensive guide to 245 Battlefields, giving basic facts regarding the location, historical context and objective of each enagagement, details of the opposing forces, casualties and outcome, and a useful bibliography concerning each.
This guide will appeal to the serious student of military history, the traveleer and the armchair campaigner.
