My deep ignorance of global history precludes me from glibly listing the ten most decisive battles in human history (maybe including one between Neanderthals and Humans?) but if I had to pick ten important battles which are actually gameable they would be:

Cannae

Zama

Edge Hill

Bosworth

Borodino (or Leipzig or Waterloo)

Blenheim (or Ramilles)

Koennigratz – probably the single most important battle in list as it determined the course of history from 1866 to 1989

Market Garden

Operation Uranus

Midway

Funnily enough, I’ve Wargamed all of these, some of them multiple times.
