9780007144174: British Battles: Amazing Views (Www.Getmapping.Com)

British Battles combines Getmapping’s unique aerial photography with battle diagrams to create a startling new perspective on Britain’s wars. From the Roman invasion, to the English Civil War, the Jacobite rebellions, and on to the Blitz, Getmapping British Battles takes a comprehensive and extraordinarily different look at Britain’s battlefields.

From Julius Caesar’s invasion of Britain in 55 BC, to the battle of Nechtansmere in Medieval Scotland, from the Battle of Edgehill during the English Civil to defeat of the Jacobites at Culloden, the British Isles have echoed to the sound of battle.
Getmapping British Battles presents these conflicts with a clarity never seen before, by combining aerial photography of the battlefields as they are now, overlaid with battlefield diagrams charting the course of the battles themselves. Together with texts giving further details of the wars, the generals, the casualties and the results, this is truly the ultimate package for the military or historical enthusiast.
