Wilson Hall

Offered through Osher Lifelong Learning Institute (OLLI) at UAH

Winston Churchill once said that “War is mostly a catalog of blunders.” Throughout the course of military history, an argument could be made that more battles are lost through a series of incompetent command decisions, failure of planning, underestimating of opponents, or simply arrogance on the part of one of the combatants than are won. In this course, we’ll look at six instances where one side – who should have won – lost due to one of these blunders. It seems to be a lesson that some just never learn.
