Bridges of Battle: Famous Battlefield Actions at Bridges & River Crossings
Donald Featherstone (au). Battles for bridges have punctuated the course of warfare. Rivers pose serious problems for mil. commanders as barriers to their advancing armies. They provide invaluable defensive positions for those in retreat. From more than 2,000 years of mil. history, 100 battles have been selected. They range in size from small-scale actions to massive, army-scale operations. The most famous bridge battle was that at Arnhem, immortalized in book & film as A Bridge Too Far. The Civil War provides many examples of such battles, e.g. First Bull Run. You will be able to see both sides of the story & compare battles fought in similar circumstances, but with different weapons, across the centuries. Illustrations.
