This comprehensive volume encompasses not just the greatest land battles of all time, but sieges such as Constantinople and Tenochtitlan; naval battles such as Actium, the Armada, Trafalgar and Tsushima; and the crucial conflicts in the air during the Battle of Britain and the American attack on Japan in 1945 right up to the conflict in Iraq.

The coverage is truly worldwide, from the battle in the Teutoburg Forest in AD9, when the Germans annihilated the Romans, to Hataka Bay in 1281, when the Japanese defeated the Mongols, and the first battle of of Panipat in 1526, when the Mughals conquered Hindustan.

Throughout, the reader is presented with a masterly overview of the advances in military technology, how battlefield commanders responded to these changes, and the impact of each battle.

Richly illustrated in colour with hundreds of photographs, contemporary paintings and specially commissioned battle plans, The Seventy Great Battles of All Time is essential reading for anyone interested in military history.
