The men of the Victorian Army combined a strong sense of tradition with professionalism owing to the variety of tasks it undertook such as 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. Particular incidents and battles show how the army lived and fought. Illustrated. Very fine copy.
