    I dont think you could come up with a single, conclusive "greatest" defensive battle in history. Just personal "greatest" ones.

    For me, i have to say the First Siege of Tobruk during the desert war of 41. Expected (but not considered likely) to hold for 8 weeks before surrender, the defenders held for 8 months in total through active defense. The Rats inflicted twice as many casualties on the Axis forces as were inflicted on them
