Great battles mark history’s turning points, occurring as they do where cultures and ideologies clash.
While some battles have been won by the superior force, others have been won by a sheer dogged refusal to surrender in the face of overwhelming odds. Superior weaponry has sometimes brought victory, as at Plassey, while the superior generalship of a Napoleon, a Wellington, or a Marlborough has won the day on other occasions.
All the great battles in this book are pivotal in history: if any one of them had gone the other way, the world would have been a very different place. And none of them – with the exception, perhaps, of Iwo Jima and Berlin – was a foregone conclusion. Even Iwo Jima and Berlin mark significant points in larger conflicts whose results could easily, and catastrophically, have gone the other way.
