Battlefields Annual Review by Jon Cooksey (2005, Paperback)
Battles, as Winston Churchill once famously remarked, 'are the punctuation marks of history' and getting out and walking the ground where some of history's most momentous and bloody events were played out is an increasingly popular pastime.
For four years Battlefields Review magazine brought many of those battlefields to life for its readers with cutting edge research and thought provoking articles by leading authorities in their field. Now Battlefields Review is back, this time as an annual in book form, better and brighter than ever. Still with a commitment to seeking out the highest quality in articles, illustrations and maps, the 2005 Battlefields Annual Review will bring readers up to date with a proven mix of news, features and events for the diary from or concerning battlefields worldwide.
With some important anniversaries in mind, it will look back at the 60th anniversary of D-Day and forward to the 60th anniversary of the Battle for Berlin and the end of the Second World War, whilst not forgetting the 190th anniversary of the Battle of Waterloo. With contributions from some of Britain's leading military historians Battlefields annual Review will be an annual event not to be missed.
