      I have fond memories of Great Battles of the Civil War, co-authored by Martin F. Graham (contributing writer), George Skoch (contributing writer), and William C. Davis (consultant) from an early age. My mother worked as a real estate agent, so I kept myself busy by browsing its pages during her open houses. The book became a constant companion.   This book provides an accessible, highly-illustrated introduction to 30 of history's most famous battles, including Marathon, Hastings, Agincourt, Saratoga, Trafalgar, Waterloo, Gettysburg, the Somme, Stalingrad, D-Day, and many more.5/5(2).

    No marks from past owners, Not a former library book, Not a remainder, or book club, not clipped, has chips and tears around edges There is a unique fascination in the study of great battles which surely derives from the sense that high issues can be decided by trivial incidents and that the margin between victory and defeat is.   Reviews of the Great Battles for Boys series "This book should be in school libraries everywhere. It is a treasure trove of information that is engagingly written that makes one feel they are in a great classroom with a great instructor sharing his knowledge in a fun way." 5 Stars, Top 10 Amazon Reviewer4/5(1).
