What was Britain's greatest battle? You decide

Date Posted: 20/12/2012

Britain’s Greatest Battle, a programme of events running from 13th February at the National Army Museum in London, will explore over 400 years of Britain’s battles, from Culloden to Rorke’s Drift.

As part of the programme, an exhibition will examine the key facts, impact and legacies of the top 20 British battles chosen by the museum’s curators. It targets how tactics, luck and innovations have helped the British Army scoop victory and where it found its fiercest challenges, opponents and bitterest triumphs. 

Original artefacts help tell the stories behind these battles and the real-life experiences of soldiers on both sides who fought in them.

Encompassing changes in warfare, politics and culture, Britain’s Greatest Battles asks you to decide which one was the greatest test to Britain’s military and biggest success?

Group travel organisers wishing to find out more about the programme of events in this series, or wanting to see the online exhibition, should visit the National Army Museum’s website.
