A Brief History of the British Army
Available in Stock
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 book has been updated to include the Falklands, Bosnia, Iraq and Afghanistan campaigns, plus the army's role in Northern Ireland.
