Great Military Disasters tells the dramatic stories behind the world's most calamitous conflicts. From the French army's failure to understand the impact of new technology at Crecy to Hitler's blatant overconfidence at Stalingrad, military historian Julian Spilsbury provides thrilling accounts of each disaster, covering exactly what went wrong, how and why. Of course, a disastrous outcome for one side meant victory for another, so as well as exploring the reasons the conflict ended in disaster, Great Military Disasters also reveals the key to victory. Complemented with eyewitness quotations and dramatic illustrations, this is both an absorbing overview of the world's major conflicts and an intriguing study of human incompetence of the gravest kind. The disastrous campaigns are: Mount Tabor 1125 BC; Leipzig 1813; Siracuse 415-413 BC; Fredericksburg 1862; Cannae 216 BC; Sedan 1870; Teutoberger Wald AD 9; Little Big Horn 1876; Bannockburn 1314; Isandhlwana 1879; Crecy 1346; Tannenburg 1914; Flodden 1513; Verdun 1916; Pavia 1524; The Somme 1916; Saratoga 1777; Stalingrad 1942; Moscow 1812; Dien Bien Phu 1954.
