Description
Information
What really happened on the world's most famous battlefields? This book has the answers.

The Battle of Hastings: We learn, using the latest technology, that the very coastline of Hastings has changed dramatically, and that the Bayeaux tapestry is neither a tapestry, nor French.

The Spanish Armada: Marine archaeology and recently discovered Spanish documentation force a re-think of events.

Gallipoli: We will investigate why - at the height of the campaign - both sides were losing many more men to disease than to enemy fire, and why the leadership did not take this into account.

The book also sheds new light on the Battle of Waterloo, the Battle of Little Bighorn, the Charge of the Light Brigade and the Battle of Agincourt.
