  • 178 Pages

The Battlefield Guide to Life is a self-improvement trip into the past, where you will witness decisions and events that parallel those in your own life.  Historian James Turner offers up advice based on what he's learned during his years of traveling to some of the world's most interesting battlefields, and how those lessons can positively affect your life.

Hear the stories of Julius Caesar and his ability to adapt in Gaul, Bonnie Prince Charlie and the price of indecision at Culloden, Colonel Travis who would never surrender the Alamo, and the Flemish guildsmen who proved at Kortrijk that the underdog always has a fighting chance.  Let Henry V motivate you at Agincourt, Joshua Chamberlain inspire you at Appomattox, and Richard III caution you as he goes down swinging at Bosworth Field.

Those who don't learn from history are bound to repeat it, and that's not a bad thing if you understand that history is simply a series of lessons on human nature. Life is a battlefield, and the key to victory is understanding yourself.
