Summary, etc.:
Civilizations have been fighting each other for thousands of years. Some might say civilizations have left few traces except descriptions of their greatest martial endeavours and some ancient conflicts remain unresolved today. 'The Greatest Battles in History' is an illustrated reference work to the key wars and battles fought from ancient times up to the Battle of Waterloo in 1815. Arranged in chronological order from the early Middle Eastern conflicts such as Megiddo and Kadesh through to the Napoleonic Wars, each entry includes full-colour illustrations - either maps or artworks - as well as information boxes containing key facts and figures and a description of the context, the course of battle and the conflict's aftermath.
