Description
Examining the tactics that won battles in an era when imperial and colonial opponents were often heavily mismatched in technology or employed entirely different strategies to outwit each other, this visual history explores the methods by which European armies gained and lost ascendancy on colonial battlefields. Photographs, drawings, battle maps, and reproductions of art illuminate the soldiers, weapons, and actions of such campaigns as the siege of Yorktown (1781), the amphibious assault on Valdiva (1820), the battle of Isly (1844), the defense of the Alamo (1836), the retreat from Kabul (1842), Little Big Horn (1876), Omdurman (1898), and the naval bombardment of Alexandria (1882).
