Fifteen decisive battles of the world by Edward Shepherd Creasy( Book )

346 editions published between 1850 and 2012 in 5 languages and held by 3,375 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Undoubtedly the most famous work of military history of the nineteenth century, Edward S. Creasy's Fifteen decisive battles of the world has been read and re-read for close to 150 years. It is not only the authoritative account of each battle that makes Creasy's work such a classic--it is his command of narrative, his interest in human struggle, his profound deductions as to effects of the battles, and his striving after truth. Furthermore, his selections seem as wise and well-considered today as when Fifteen decisive battles first appeared in 1851: Nobody since has made better ones, nor given us better accounts. Apart from the scholarship and literary skill of Creasy's book, there is another reason it has endured: Creasy was essentially fair-minded. He had been a judge, and when he became England's great military critic and historian, he maintained a thoroughly judicial attitude. He was not a British partisan, nor French, nor German--he was a cosmopolitan observer of great events. Out of 2300 years, Creasy only found fifteen battles which he called decisive in the highest sense. He chose them not for the number of killed and wounded, nor for their status in myth and lore, but because they fundamentally changed the course of world history. In doing so, he made his book a miniature military history of the western world, a classic that will repay continued study for generations to come, as it has for generations

19 editions published between 1906 and 1939 in English and Undetermined and held by 195 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The history is organized in strictly chronological order and is primarily a political history. The contents include: rise of the Ottoman Empire from 1250-1520; the culmination of power under Suleiman and the beginning of the decline 1520-1699; the decline of the empire 1703-1792; and modern Turkey, 1792-1928. Much of the modern Turkey section is focused on the years during and preceding World War I. The Balkan States history focuses almost exclusively upon those nations during and after WWI. "The Balkan Problem 1453-1914" begins this history. Each chapter subsequently focuses on a state during and after the war
