When the fighting begins, every commander, in any field of conflict, has to face the question of How to Win on the Battlefield.
This ground-breaking book examines, in a series of case studies, 25 of the key tactics that have achieved victory through the ages. Drawing on examples of battles from around the globe, on land, at sea and in the air, and across history, the authors reveal the enduring value of each tactic in clear and compelling descriptions and analysis.
Certain tactics have stood the test of time:
• General Robert E. Lee achieved a remarkable victory through an audacious flanking manoeuvre at Chancellorsville in 1863; the same bold move had been used over 600 years before by the king of France at Bouvines
• For the Parthian general Surenas at Carrhae in 53 BC and again for Kitchener at Omdurman in 1898, an overwhelming concentration of firepower ensured a decisive outcome
• Drawing the enemy led to victory both for Saladin at Hattin in 1187 and for the Russians against Napoleon in 1812.
• Allied armies seized and retained the initiative through the airborne landings in Normandy in 1944, and Soviet General Zhukov pierced enemy lines and penetrated in depth using Blitzkrieg tactics in Mongolia in 1939
Evocative photographs, illustrations and paintings, and a series of specially commissioned battle plans complete this detailed study of the most successful tactics of all time. Written by leading experts, How to Win on the Battlefield will prove indispensable reading for historians, military enthusiasts and business leaders.
