Description

A follow up to "You Did What?", this engrossing and fact-filled compendium of great military disasters and ill-advised battle plans highlights the worst military decisions throughout history and the world.

From the ancient Crusades to the modern age of chemical warfare and smart bombs, history is littered with horribly bad military ideas.

Whether a result of lack of planning, miscalculations, a leader's ego, spy infiltration, or just a really stupid idea in the first place, each military defeat is fascinating to dissect.

Written in a tongue-and-cheek style, "How to Lose a Battle" chronicles the vast history of these poorly thought out battle plans.

With over 35 chapters of incredible military disasters, both famous (infamous) and obscure, this book is chock full of trivia, history, and fascinating looks at the world's greatest military defeats.
