You've never heard of the Battle For Milvian Brdge?!?

That or Chalons in 451...

Milvian Brdige was when Constantine the Great took his Army against 10:1 odds of the Army of Maxentius, another Roman Caesar in 312. It's the battle where Constantine saw the christian cross in the sky with the words In Hoc Singo Vincent. He won, attributing his vision to the Christian God, and later made the Edict of Milan which gave freedom to all faiths...

Oh yea... mine is Gettysburg also, forgot to say. It wsa the turning point of the Civil War. More specifically I like the Battle of Little Round top. July 2nd, - 1863 2nd day of Gettysburg where Col. Joshua L. Chamberlain defends the hill in a courageous charge which is considered to bet he turning point in the war.

Favorite battle: Midway - I have always loved the Navy and their stories of valor. And even though the planes of torpedo 8 never got close enough to kill the carriers...their sacrifice allowed the dive bombers to finish off the cream of Japaneese Naval Aviation.

If it was a land slugfest..id have to say Stalingrad.

If it was an American Battle, id have to say Gettysburg or Vicksburg.

I'd also have to say Battle of the Bulge... one of the toughest and most challenging American times... and the victory gave the Allied forces the final edge to win the last great war!

Stalingrad. The Russians pretty much dug in and stopped the German's momentum. Yeah, it was a "meat grinder". But you have to admire the reslove of the Russians.
