Would you like a book that elegantly diagrams and explains great battles throughout history?  Of course you would.  Get it over at Winkbooks
Great Battles – Covering 30 important battles of the western worldGreat Battlesby Christopher JorgensenParragon Inc2007, 256 pages, 9.6 x 11.8 inchesFrom $4 Buy a copy on Amazon
A selection of 30 of the most important battles of the western world, from the ancient Greeks to more contemporary conflicts, organized chronologically into three sections (Age of Sword, Age of Gunpowder and Age of the Rifle). Each battle spreads across eight pages, the first six including an account of the battle, illustrations and some side texts. The last two pages covering each battle are always the most interesting, depicting a two-page colorful map of the battlefield showing the troops’ positions, directions of movements and important terrain features.  – Alessandro Nicoli de MattosJanuary 15, 2015
