A choice of five very different but fascinating talks on some of the most important battles of recent history. Each of them avoids being merely a recitation of events, but instead, they take you behind the scenes and introduce you to the personalities; behind the events to show you the imperatives that drove the commanders to do what they did; and behind the victor's glorious 'history' to show you the crucial importance of the inadvertant cock-up in deciding great battles!
