A follow-up title to the author's previous work, "Last Stand, At All Costs". This volume describes and recounts various occurrences of the phenomena of "impossible victories". Through ten accounts, the reader is taken from the Peninsular War or 1811 to Vietnam in 1967, with colonial action and events from the World Wars also included. Each story is told with great attention to detail and accuracy without disguising the adventure and drama which is naturally present in such victories.
