A masterful overview of British land warfare from the Danish invasion of the 9th century to the present day. This marvellous A&C Black handbook includes entries on the development of the British Army from its formation in the 17th century to the present - its structure, rank, regiments, uniforms and medals and its involvements in battles and campaigns in Europe, America, India, Africa and Asia. Biographies focus mainly on the military activities of the individual concerned. In A-Z format, 2,000 terms are clearly defined with very clear headers beginning with Abercromby, Ralph (1734-1803) who joined the King's Own Hussars in 1756 to the Zulu War of 1879, noting the battles at Rorke's Drift and defeat at Kambula and Ulundi. Supplements provide a chronology of battles in this ideal quick reference. Includes chronological lists. 275pp in paperback.
