50 Battles That Changed the World Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Takes a brief look at the 50 battles the author believes have had the most profound impact on world history, ranging from the ancient world to the present.

Book News Annotation:

Describes the 50 most important battles in all history, listing them in order of importance rather than chronologically. Each entry contains a b&w illustration or photo. Choice of battles reflects major themes in history, such as democracy, order versus anarchy, the conflict between East and West, and the conflict between Christianity and Islam. Included are profiles of 20 key figures, a glossary of military terms, and timelines. Weir was a combat correspondent and public information NCO during the Korean War, and worked in public relations for the Southern New England Telephone Company for 32 years. He is now a freelance writer specializing in military history.
