This book contains battle plans with their actual outcome, from the Romans to World War II. Each in-depth essay on a particular battle is complemented by original maps in the service of "before and after," producing fresh insights into important battles that have, in many cases, dictated the course of history. The battles analyzed, by a team of distinguished military historians, are: the classic ploys--Cannae, Chancellorsville, Alamein; surprise--Crecy, Cambrai, Blitzkrieg; misunderstanding--Waterloo, Balaklava, Gallipoli; mission impossible--Kunersdorf, First Day of Somme, Battle of Bulge; underestimating the enemy--Austerlitz, Isandawana, Singapore; narrow margins--Gettysburg, First Battle of Ypres, Crete.
