Description

“Outnumbered, Outgunned, Undeterred” presents historical examples from 1777 to the present day, analysing the tactics and courage that swung events in favour of the underdog. Each chapter is accompanied by a large illustration or photograph of the conflict in question, as well as a specially commissioned battle plan in two colours. Rob Johnson, a noted expert in the history of war, analyses each of the examples and shows, through vivid narratives and specially commissioned battle plans, how they provided inspiration both at the time and since proof that whatever the odds, fortune favours the brave.
