I think it's The Alamo.

I have only experience with a rather limited selection of them, but my favourite so far is The Fall of English France 1449-1453, which actually covers two related campaigns in decent detail. Well-written and finely illustrated. And a good counterpoint for all of the Agincourt books out there from so many publishers…

That said, considering that the Campaign series is one of the stronger ones from Osprey (96 pages per book helps), I might consider picking a few more in the future. Haven't really bought many Osprey books in the last five years.

No 68 Lutzen1632. Simply superb. Quoted as an academic source by the battlefield archaeologists who excavated a mass grave on the battlefield. Enough said.

Not sure about "The Best," but the ones I've found most useful have been CAMPAIGN 191, "Vienna 1683," followed closely by CAMPAIGN 41, "Yorktown 1781."

I liked "Coral Sea 1942", I have not been disappointed by any of the naval titles by Mark Stilles.

I have only read a few, but my favourite is Rossbach and Leuthen 1757.

A second for "Lutzen." Perhaps the best Osprey I've seen.

I thought the one on Flodden was very well done.

One that stands out in my mind is #165 "Iraq 1941". Picked it up on a whim and was utterly absorbed by it.

Learned a lot from Wabash 1791.

Quebec 1759

The ones on the woodland Indian wars are all quite good. I also really liked the one on the Arab attack on Constantinople.

Haven't read many, but The Fall of English France is the one that comes to mind.

Stirling Bridge and Falkirk

I wish Armstrong would write more. Battle of the Standard? Hint. Hint.
