FAMOUS BATTLES AND HOW THEY SHAPED THE MODERN WORLD, 1588-1943: From the Armada to Stalingrad
Going beyond military history, the authors explore the transformation of battles into sites of memory and meaning. Cast into epic myths of the fight of Good against Evil, of punishment for decadence or reward for virtue, particular battles have acquired fame beyond their immediate contemporaneous relevance, and are described in context here. 16 pages of illustrations, some color.
