...which one would it be?

Assume that you can do so without harm.

Personally, I'd want to see Thermopylae. I thought about D-Day also, but I'm not sure I could stomach seeing so many young American boys killed right in front of me.

I imagine I'd have nightmare.

But to see the redcoats rally, and the French run...

Thermopylae is a good choice.

I think I might pick Lexington and Concord or Saratoga though.

Maybe Waterloo.

I am sure it was impressive, like 10 times the size of the battle in the final lord of the rings movie.

The First Battle of Bull Run always fascinated me. Imagine 95% of the men there have never been in battle before. And all the Washington civilians fleeing back to town when the expected "final" battle turned out to just be the start of a long war.

And asking General Bee what he meant about his line referring to "Stonewall" Jackson

Ok, seriously, probably as previously mentioned- D-Day and Gettysburg.

I am not sure I'd like to watch Gallipoli. Good men getting mown down by machine gun fire because of incompetent British leadership is not something I'd like to watch.

You know, I hadn't thought about that, but you might be on to something.

Being onboard the Enola Gay would have been quite the adventure that day.

I think if you could get to experience almost all the different battles on D-Day with all the different services, I think it would give you a great respec for the soldiers of the armed forces.

I'm not up on my ancient history battles, but in more recent times...

Little Big Horn.

Attack on Pearl Harbor (if it can be called a battle).

D-Day.

Stalingrad.

Midway.

[Quote= Dave Lister]
The Trojans having being layed seige to for a decade suddenly wake up
to find the Greek army gone, and a large wooden horse left outside the
city. A wooden horse LARGE enough to hold 500 Greek warriors, full
dressed for battle, AND toilet facilities, and they pull it INSIDE
the city and go and have an early night? beware of
Trojans, they are complete smegheads.

"In all of history"? Then I want to see the biggest battle in all of history, and take pictures and video! (...in a galaxy far, far away... and I wouldn't doubt for a second that that is the case)

Of course if we're limiting this to battles in known human history, I think I'd want to see the one between Leonidas and Xerxes ("Molon Labe!").
