Britain's Greatest Battles

The National Army Museum is holding a poll for what we think is Britain's Greatest Battle

I can't for the life of me think why some of the battles which history ranks as amongst The British Army's greatest disasters are in the running.

Waterloo has to be high. El Alamein was the turning point in WW2, Quebec has a Canadian significance and Imjin River was a great defensive battle.

Interesting title "Britain's Greatest Battles". Many of the battles listed were fought by Allied forces and not only British forces. That would rule out Waterloo for example and Naseby and Culloden was England v Scotland.

Damn! There is a home page to the poll, but I keep getting specific battle accounts linked for some reason.
