KIRKUS REVIEW

A study of the world's most decisive military encounters, battles which have altered the course of history. Included are Waterloo, the battle of Trenton and Princeton, Agincourt, Hastings, the Roman victory over the Carthaginians at the Metaurus, Arminius' ambush of the Romans at Teutoburg Forest- and each is analyzed in terms of strategy, manoeuvres , backgrounds, and significance. These reconstructions are made largely from contemporary accounts, and should interest any history-minded boy.
