5.0 out of 5 stars Great book
If you've read the other books by Bryant Perret this is a must. At this point I've only gotten two "stories" into the book but they are very well written and full of details like his previous work (At all cost - Last stands - Seize and hold - Against all odds)
Bryant Perret has a way of capture the reader and the book is hard to put down once you've picked it up.

3.0 out of 5 stars Very well researched
This book describes in considerable detail ten battles (ranging from the Peninsular War of 1811 to Vietnam) where the ultimate victors snatched victory from the jaws of certain defeat.

3.0 out of 5 stars Very well researched, 24 Aug 2000
This review is from: Impossible Victories: Ten Unlikely Battlefield Successes (CASSELL MILITARY PAPERBACKS) (Paperback)
This book describes in considerable detail ten battles (ranging from the Peninsular War of 1811 to Vietnam) where the ultimate victors snatched victory from the jaws of certain defeat.
There is a common theme running through these ten battles and it is very interesting to note that though the methods of carrying war to the enemy change and though the weapons used become more fearsome, what remains unaltered through the ages is human spirit, courage and endeavour. In each of these battles it is only the human side of the conflict that wins the day, not machines nor better and more sophistcated arms, it is guts and determination.
This book is very well researched, as one would expect from such an eminent military historian as Perrett.
It is easy to get bogged down in the disposition and movement of the troops but the same could be said of any military history of calibre.
