Book - 2003
Rate this:
The men of the Victorian army ruled a large part of the world. As the visible power behind the greatest empire there had ever been, they were involved in wars and policing wherever British interests demanded it, whether in Canada, the Crimea, Afghanistan or the Sudan. Small by continental standards, the Victorian army combined a strong sense of tradition with growing professionalism. This book explores many facets of the army and its extraordinary range of challenges and experiences, from putting down the Indian Mutiny, fighting in the jungles of West Africa, facing a Zulu impi and Boer sharpshooters, or garrisoning the many outposts of the empire.
