British Revolutionary War general William Howe was so obviously distracted from the campaign by the charms of his mistress that American Tories wrote a song about it. More gravely, as the Red Army invaded and triumphed over Finland in WWII, Finland ended up losing 25,000 soldiers; the Russians lost 250,000. These and other facts are showcased in Military History's Most Wanted: The Top Ten Book of Improbable Victories, Unlikely Heroes, and Other Martial Oddities. Written by M. Evan Brooks, who served in the U.S. Army and National Guard for more than 30 years, the book gathers 10 brief, encyclopedia-style entries apiece on such topics as Mercenaries, Literary Soldiers, Amphibious Operations and Decisive Battles.
