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