Christian Wolmar, Britain's foremost transport historian, turns his attention to railways and war, exploring 'how the creation of the railways led to a tremendous escalation of the scale of warfare and how increasingly they were used in a strategic way to conduct military operations'. Beginning with the Grand Crimean Central Railway, built to supply troops at Sevastopol in 1855, Wolmar traces railway involvement through two world wars, up to the demise of industrial-scale warfare and the need for 'engines of war'.
