Amazing Stories of Unconventional Military Strategies that worked!

Ranging from the siege of ancient Babylon and Caesar's campaigns in Gaul to the American Civil War and Wold War II, Turn Around and Run Like Hell captures key moments in history when the ingenuity, vision and daring of brilliant leaders turned the tide of battle.

Read about Hannibal's spectacular envelopment of the roman army at Cannae in 216 BC; the Mongols' awe-inspiring rout of Christian forces at Liegnitz in 1241; Pizarro's daring kidnapping of Inca ruler Atahuallpa in 1532; and the brilliant campaign of subterfuge that helped ensure the success of the 1944 D-Day landings.

Engaging, enthralling and inspiring, these twenty-five tales offer a fascinating take on the history of warfare while showcasing some of its more remarkable, memorable and charismatic characters.
