Battlefield Detectives: Unearthing New Evidence on the World's Most Famous Battlefieldsby David Wason
Synopses & Reviews
Seven of history's greatest battles receive the Battlefield Detectives treatment in this fantastic companion to the TV series. Was Gallipoli lost before the Allies even got there? Was the defeat of the Spanish Armada actually more of a draw? Was Custer's last stand really that heroic? And did the V-for-victory sign really originate at Agincourt? These and dozens of other dramatic historical questions are dug up, examined with the latest technology, and answered.
