Decisive Battles is a television show, which originally aired on Fridays on the History Channel, that depicted historic battles. It ran for thirteen episodes in mid-2004. The show used the game engine from Rome: Total War to present 3-D versions of the battles. The show was hosted by Matthew Settle, who usually traveled to the sites of the battle. Reruns of the show air on the History International channel and the Military History channel.
