AJS: Sir John Fortescue's monumental History of the British Army standsŻapart in the writing of British military history. It is the campaignŻhistory of the old long-service army that ended with the Cardwell reformsŻof 1870. Whilst there is some account of the army in the medieval age theŻwork concentrates on the period 1700-1870 and remains a solid andŻpermanent contribution to British and Imperial history.ŻUncommon now.

1957, Aldershot, 
xv + 470pp, frontis, 15 illus, text illus, 8 folding maps, dark blue cloth, dw. AJS: In his foreword Field-Marshal The Viscount Alanbrooke says: "With a life of close on 100 years, during which hardly a year passed without taking part in some form of war, punitive expedition or frontier engagement, it is probable that the Indian Mountain Artillery saw as much, if not more, active service than any other branch of the Regiment."

3 Waters (Col W.H.H.) & Du Cane (Col H.) Translators. The War in South Africa Prepared in the Historical Section of the Great General Staff, Berlin.
1904-06,

Preface: The essential object of the work is the instruction of the GermanŻofficer, and the criticisms which it contains point out, therefore, notŻonly our alledged faults and errors, but show also what, in the opinion ofŻthe Great General Staff at Berlin, we ought to have done. This celebratedŻbranch of the German army had access to various sources of informationŻboth during and after the war which were closed to us, and the work mayŻbest be left to speak for itself.ŻAJS: Translated from the original German edition this is a detailed studyŻand account of the military operations in South Africa prepared by theŻGeneral Staff, Berlin. Part I of the set concerns the campaign inŻNatal up to and including the battle of Colenso, with an account of LordŻMethuen's campaign in the west concluding with the battle ofŻMagersfontein. Part II relates to operations in the western theatre fromŻthe assumption of command by Lord Roberts until the surrender of Cronje atŻPaardeberg. With appendices to each section.
