Synopsis

Find out about 12 of the biggest and most brutal battles in the history of the world, from Thermopylae in 480 BCE right the way through to Operation Desert Storm in 1991, taking in Cannae, Agincourt, Lepanto, the Siege of Yorktown, Trafalgar, Waterloo, Gettysburg, the Somme, the Battle of Britain and the Siege of Stalingrad.



Explore the date and location of each battle, the opposing forces involved and the casualties resulting. A timeline on every spread gives the key dates from each battle, and what happened when. Additional background information to each conflict is also provided, including the Punic Wars, the Hundred Years' War, the American Revolution, the Napoleonic Wars, the American Civil War, World War 1, World War 2 and the first Gulf War.



Take a look at the technology, tactics and weaponry involved in each battle, from the longbow at Agincourt and the galleasses at Lepanto to the trench warfare of the Somme and the stealth fighter jets of the Gulf War.



Infographic elements present information in a simple and highly visual way. The perfect resource for project work on battles, warfare and military history, or simply a great leisure read, for children aged 9 and above.
