 BACK COVER BLURB: 

‘Once again, Lt. Colonel Mike Snook puts you on the ground with the British Army during the colonial wars of the late 19th. Century. Snook’s meticulous research pays off as he recreates these battles in gripping detail, both profiling individual acts of courage and showing how the systematic problems and tactical mistakes that led to defeat provide lessons still applicable today.

In this compelling and original history Lt. Colonel Mike sheds intriguing new light on military disaster during the high Victorian period. With the empire at its zenith this was an era that witnessed some of the British Army’s greatest colonial successes. It is also a period of troubled transition as the army struggled to adapt to the changing nature and needs of modern warfare.
