Great Battles

Peter H. Wilson

Great Battles

  • The Great Battles Series. The story of the world's most important battles - how they were fought, how they have been commemorated, and the long historical shadows that they have cast
  • The story of the Battle of Lützen - one of the most famous battles in the Thirty Years' War
  • Challenges the accepted view that Lützen was a milestone in military development, arguing that its significance lies more in the political and cultural sphere
  • How the battle has been remembered, from the immediate aftermath to the present day - and what this tells us
