"You probably haven't heard of most of them, but these little-known Asian battles had a major impact on world history. Mighty empires rose and fell, religions spread and were checked, and great kings led their forces to glory… or ruin.

These battles span the centuries, from Gaugamela in 331 B.C. to Kohima in World War II. While each involved different armies and issues, they share a common impact on Asian history. These are the obscure battles that changed Asia, and the world, forever…."

Rather interesting perspective in that list. Given the number of battles featuring Islam chosen and the lack of other battles that didn't, not the list I'd have compiled.

Not uninteresting, BUT….The Moghul Empire ruled India until 1858???? No significant Chinese battle? None of the great 'Imperial' battles of the 19c?
