With the advent of Wikipedia it has become far easier to find the general background to almost any subject one might want to investigate. However there are still many specialist sites which provide far more of the detail which might be desired by a wargamer or military researcher.
For this reason, this page includes a link to the Wikipedia page for each of the major conflicts or periods listed but then does not link to further Wikipedia pages for the individual battles, preferring instead to highlight other pages which might provide a more focused insight into the event.
