Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This is an upstairs-downstairs view of the Victorian-Edwardian army, one of the world's most peculiar fighting forces. The battles it fought are household words, but the idiosyncracies and eccentricities of its soldiers and the often appalling conditions under which they lived have gone largely unrecorded. Byron Farwell explores here the lives of officers and men, their foibles, gallantry, and diversions, their discipline and their rewards.

Synopsis:

The outrageous, but often glorious, story of Britain's pre-World War I Army.

Synopsis:

Highly readable . . . witty and entertaining.Eye-opening . . . extravagant . . . lively.A thumping good read.A delightful and extraordinarily well-informed book.
