How many times have you been reading a text in which the author refers to a famous battle as though you could immediately recall all the details, the outcome, the key figures, and the order of battle?
This website is a great resource when you find yourself needing a quick refresher on Washington's crossing of the Delaware, or how Benedict Arnold outmanoeuvred the British at Saratoga.
History Animated provides very helpful and interesting animations of battles from the Revolutionary War, the War of 1812, the Mexican War, the Civil War and both Atlantic and Pacific theaters of World War Two.
I know, it is for school kids . . . But it is well done and a good place to kill an hour or two "reviewing."
