Guinness "Blunders" Series

In 1991, Guinness Publishing produced the first of a series of books cataloguing military and historical blunders. The humorous - sometimes tragic - consequences of misjudgement, incompetence, oversights, mishaps, gaffes and calamities are presented in a very readable fashion. A short, parallel series of books recounting famous sporting blunders was produced from 1994. It would appear that other books were scheduled for the series but never reached publication.
