Accordingly, the interest in and the importance of identifying and comprehending the decisive battles of this, the age of violence, have increased. Each battle is brilliantly described by a leading military historian, who provides not only a gripping narrative account but an analysis of the battle’s decisiveness in its short-term and long-term effects.
