Battles That Changed The World

The course of history has often been changed on the battlefield. This is a list of great battles that influenced history in the past two centuries. Great Battles of History

These battles were often a turning point in history.

For example, The Battle of Stalingrad which was one of the bloodiest and most desperate battle in history of man, held up the German advance into Russia and led to its ultimate long defeat.

In America, the Battle of Gettysburg was the turning point in the US civil war and was the memorable location for Abraham Lincoln's most memorable speech highlight why the US was fighting. (see also: Speeches that Changed the World)
