Hundred Greatest Battles Update for November 2010

I have added 14 battles since May, bringing the total now up to 54. I've even created a map (using blank maps provided by the other wiki) and discovered a disturbing trend. Most battles seem centered around northeast France and Greece. Two whole (inhabited) continents, Australia and South America, remain battle free. All the North American battles are located in the United States and the only African battle is in Tunisia. Here is the list so far:

1      Adrianople
