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.

even with my ani-war sentiments I really enjoyed this lively, well told and analysed account of war history. The hours flew past!
