THE BEST BATTLE WAS EITHER AUSTERLITZ OR AIN JULAT.

The best battle... maybe the siege of Vienna by Ottomans,  Waterloo,  Hastings,  Yorktown?

@Ninad 

I can't really say much on that, because I am not familiar with the battle.

I would say Constantinople definitely ranks near the top but Balaclava was a military disaster by any measure of the term.

The fall of Comstantinople was a well important siege.  Also the battle of Balaclava for the brave British soldiers.

Okay very well then. But what I said still applies then. Every battle in history has depended partly on what the enemy did wrong, not only on what the winning side did right. So I still believe that Alexanders victory at Gaugamela was spectacular.

The advantage also lies in the terrain and strategy,like the battle of Thermopylae and Austerlitz

Technically the effects of chance are referred to as the hinge factor in  military strategy, I read a book (How chance and stupidity have changes history) on this very topic, however the effects I was referring to was a poor military decision, not a chance occurrence.

I think every battle in history depended at least partly on luck and what the enemy did not or did do, or did not and did do wrong. Not just the Greeks and Alexander at Gaugamela.

@PatrickDup 

A quick google search shows that strategy, though important, was not quite as important as luck. It shows that Darius kept his army awake fearing a night attack, ands his average solders were not even as well trained as Alexander's, it seems these combined to weaken the larger force and allow for Alexander's victory.

No way. The battle that required the greatest strategic planning and skill would had to have been the Battle of Gaugamela.

I was referring to the actual fighting on Utah, they landed in the wrong spot and had very little resistance, anything they overcame that was noncombat is not quite as spectacular as running up beach in the crossfire of machine gun nests and mortar launchers.
