About This Item

London: Coronet Books. Near Fine. 1999. First Edition. Softcover. 0340728302 . EXcellent, near new condition, clean & unmarked, slight corner wear. B/w illus. 394 pages plus booklists. Book Description: From the wooden horse at Troy to a dropped package of cigars at Antietam to a photograph snapped in Vietnam, world history has been shaped as much by chance and error as by courage and heroism. Military conflicts are often decided by a caprice of weather, coincidence, or incompetence - in short, by the unpredictable hinge factor. Durschmied takes us through history's major battles and, in a series of gripping narratives, recreates the events that defined their outcomes. Drawing from historical accounts and personal documents, Durschmied gives us a fascinating look at how the unexpected and the bizarre have dictated world events. (400noto) ; 8vo 8" - 9" tall .
