Seven of history's greatest battles are given the Battlefield Detectives treatment in this fantastic companion to the TV series. David Wason brings the essential questions of each investigation to life. Was Gallipoli lost before the Allies even got there? Was the defeat of the Spanish Armada actually more of a draw? Was Custer's last stand really that heroic? And did the v-sign really originate at Agincourt? The answers to these and dozens of other dramatic historical questions are dug up, dusted off and laid out for you in Battlefield Detectives.
