    The first standing professional army in England developed after the Restoration in the reigns of Charles II and James II. There was, however, doubt about the wisdom of such a force, which was seen by many as a potentially dangerous instrument of arbitrary rule. First published in 1975 as The British Army: A Concise History, this classic title has been updated to include the Falklands, Bosnia, Iraq and Afghanistan campaigns, plus the army's role in Northern Ireland.
