Reviews

 
'Military history as it should be written sound in reasoning, precise in detail and firmly placed within the relevant political, military and social contexts. It incorporates the testimony of private and general and does not shirk, where necessary, from passing judgement or according praise'. The battles: Ticonderoga, 1758. The French defeat the English; Queenston Heights, 1812. Brock defeats an American invasion; Ridgeway, 1866. Fenians invade the Niagara; Leliefontein, 1900. Gallant rearguard action in the Boer War; Moreuil Wood, 1918. Rare and disastrous cavalry action in the First World War; Le Mesnil-Patry, 1944. Enthusiasm and courage unavailing in the face of the Waffen SS; Kapelsche Veer, 1945. Unnecessary and costly fight for a boggy Dutch island.
