Description

Exploring the most spectacular failures in military history, this graphic account offers an insight into the psychology of military incompetence and the reasons why even the most professional of military forces inflict disaster on themselves. From the massacre of Varus and his legions in the Black Forest in AD9 and right through to the current conflict in Afghanistan, Military Blunders analyses why things go wrong on the battlefield, and who is to blame.
