Decisive Battles of the World
by Edward Shepherd Creasy
Publisher: The Colonial press 1899
Number of pages: 490
Fifteen Decisive Battles of the World from Marathon to Waterloo is a famous book which is not merely lodged in libraries, but is read and re-read. It is not only an authority, but the stories the writer tells are as interesting in narrative as human struggle is itself interesting, while his deductions as to the effects are as profound as philosophy and as sound as fact-entrenched truth.
