Reviews

Any map fan will have an absolute field day with Battles That Changed History, as its many sumptuously crafted maps intricately detail the battles in question with beautiful clarity. This is without a doubt one of DK's finest history offerings in several years. * All About History *
Some depictions of human conflict acquire such a charm over centuries, we half forget we are seeing a bloodbath. Others have an enduring power to appal. Recent documentary photographs strike a chill. This lavishly illustrated chronicle of warfare explores epic battles that turned the historic tide - from Manzikert to Marston Moor to the Middle East - while reminding us that nothing really changes. * Saga Magazine *
