    From the earliest recorded battles in the ancient Near East to Desert Storm in 1991, Richard Overy has selected 100 battles, all of them significant in some way, although the victors, like Sitting Bull at Little Big Horn, did not always win the war. Arranged chronologically within chapters on factors that can influence the outcome of armed combat - leadership, overwhelming odds, technical innovation, deception, raw courage, and good fortune - the battles serve to illustrate the history of warfare itself.
