Military history overflows with successful campaigns by celebrated commanders. Less well known are the wartime tragedies of incompetence, miscalculation and misfortune that have dishonoured the names of once-proud generals, wasted the lives of thousands of soldiers, and resulted in the loss of precious territory and power. In Great Military Disasters Julian Spilsbury details twenty absorbing encounters including the bloody Battle of Bannockburn in 1314, Napoleon's humiliation in Mascow, in 1812 and General Custer's shocking defeat at the Battle of Little Bighorn in 1876. In doing so he demonstrates how the misguided actions of a few men brought about the downfall of some of history's greatest armies.
