Two Disruptive Battles that Changed History — Market Mad House

The two battles listed here changed history because they led to other greater battles that set the shape of our modern world.

For example, there would have been no British victories at Malta and El Alamein, no Allied air campaign in Western Europe, or Allied invasion of Normandy without British victory in 1940. In addition, the Russians would have had a far harder time in World War II without the British. The Germans and Italians could have diverted the forces that fought in North Africa to Russia, for instance.
