Favorite Battle?

Would also say the battle of Poitiers, where the moslem advance north finally where halted by Charles Martel and the Franks. Who knows what would have happened if they had lost. Europe might have been looking very different.

Valley of Tears, 1973. One IDF armored betallion stops the entire syrian northern effort.

Toss up between gettysburg and the Normandy landings.
Gettysburg is so great because of the piecemeal way it formed. You had a bunch of troops milling about, and heres this central junction, and it just... happened. A few shots here, a few there, and the armies just kind of formed up as they arrived. Which led directly to Chamberlains triumph, because if the union left had been properly secured, he never would have been in danger. His quick thinking and the discipline of his troops truly won that battle.
Sherman's march is also up there, just cause he was such a cold S.O.B.

Steel On Target
I'd say General Hood's Atlanta and Tennessee Campaigns...very desperate struggles which displayed much bravery, especially on the Rebel side, from field commanders on down.

Battle of Midway the truning point of WW2

Well I'd have to say its Äyräpää and Vuosalmi 1944. Without the victory there I'd be a russian now. My intrest in medieval warfare makes me also nominate Bouvines (1214).
