Military history often highlights successes and suggests a sense of inevitability about victory, but there is so much that can be gleaned from considering failures. Study these crucibles of history to gain a better understanding of why a civilization took - or didn't take - a particular path.

This could have been a fantastic audio book. The content is compelling but the narrator removes any possibility of enjoying this book. He sounds as if each individual word has been recorded and pieced together, disrupting any possible fluidity. Such a shame.
