Product Description

Edward Creasy’s 1851 military analysis of fifteen world battles is a classic of its genre. Appearing between Clausewitz’s On War (1832) and Ardant Du Picq’s Battle Studies (composed c.1870), The Fifteen Decisive Battles of the World: From Marathon to Waterloo is essential reading for military scientists and historians.
