BRIEF HISTORY OF THE BRITISH ARMY

J. HASWELL & J. LEWIS-STEMPEL    Book Number: 81269    Product format: Paperback

First published in 1975 by Thames & Hudson as 'The British Army: A Concise History', this 2016 revised edition in paperback has brought this classic work right up to date. It has expanded the section on the dissolution of empire to include a full account of Northern Ireland and the Falklands War and covers the Gulf War, Bosnia, Afghanistan and Iraq. Haswell sketches the medieval background before concentrating on 300 years of the regular Army. He presents a probing picture of the organisation, the development of weaponry and strategy and the everyday life of the British soldier through the centuries. The book is filled with remarkable characters including Marlborough, Wellington and Montgomery, and themes like the acquisition of empire and its defence, victory, stagnation and reform, South Africa and Flanders, and the dissolution of empire. 200 pages in softback.
