How to undo the last N commits?

git reset HEAD~N

To undo the last N commits use git reset HEAD~N

The reset command resets your current HEAD to a specific commit, without creating a new commit for the revert.

The HEAD~N tells reset to go back N commits, where N is the number of commits you want to revert.

With no additional flags the reverted changes are kept.
