Condition: Good. Gently bruised at head & tail of spine and corners, somewhat dull and faded. Previous owners inscription to the first blank. Pages lightly age-tanned. Edges of the textblock heavily spotted.
18 Maps. From the introduction: “The military history of this country may be divided into two parts, the campaigns fought by British troops in Europe, India or America against the armies of Continental powers, and the small wars within the British Empire which have recurred at given intervals since that empire was first won. Of necessity such a narrative as this must deal mainly with the former of these two categories of operations, the latter being but briefly touched on.”
