Description
The battle of Cannae in 216 BC, where Hannibal annihilated a Roman army, has become legend, inspiring military strategists ever since to analyze and attempt this feat. Yet such battles are rare, and have often hastened the ultimate defeat of the victor. Born in Iran, educated in Germany and California, and a veteran of the U.S. Army's 75th Ranger Regiment, Mir Bahmanyar has authored books on the Rangers and on U.S. Navy SEALs. In this illustrated history he examines battles of annihilation from Adrianople (378) and Tennenberg (1410) to the Alamo (1836) and Little Big Horn (1876) to discover what sets these engagements apart, whether they achieve a decisive strategic advantage, and why there are fewer of them in modern times.

"Mir Bahmanyar's Vanquished offers a fine survey of battles of annihilation from ancient Rome to modern times, where defeats often elicited such a strong response that it led to the victors' downfall. Major defeats from Cannae to the 21st century Iran are analyzed for similarities and strategic insight."Bookwatch
