Impossible Victories : Ten Unlikely Battlefield Successes, Hardback Book

Impossible Victories : Ten Unlikely Battlefield Successes Hardback

Description

Victory on the battlefield is sometimes achieved against the odds - victory snatched from the jaws of apparently inevitable defeat.

A daring counter attack, an unexpected manoeuvre, a stubborn refusal to be beaten and the impossible victory is won.

In the ten dramatic episodes in this book, military historian Bryan Perrett revisits battles from the Peninsula War of 1811 to Vietnam in 1967, via colonial action in two world wars...an excellent book, informative, fascinating in detail, and above all an easy and enjoyable read - The Royal Tank Regiment Journal
