They are the moments where history was writ in blood. Where armies determined the fate of empires and men became legends. They are the DECISIVE BATTLES. Traveling the globe to explore every aspect of these legendary encounters, this bracing series reveals the tactics and introduces the commanders that led the way to victory.
No ruler in history represents the unbridled rage and brutality of the barbarian as much as Attila the Hun. In the 5th century, Attila swept through Europe, effectively extinguishing the remnants of the Roman Empire and holding the destiny of Western Europe in his grasp. But in the end, he unwittingly secured the future of the civilized world and Christian Europe. After his death, the Hun Empire began to break up, and the marauding Huns ""scattered to the winds.""
