* QUALITY USED BOOKS FROM MILITARY HISTORY ARTIST, MARK CHURMS' OWN PRIVATE COLLECTION. DETAILED DESCRIPTION: Although the period between the end of the Napoleonic Wars and the Crimean War has been called 'the long peace', as far as the British Army (and the Honourable East India Company) were concerned, it was to see an almost continual series of campaigns and expeditions across the world. Most were fought in the defense, or further expansion, of the British Empire. This first of four volumes by Michael Barthorp detailing the British Army on campaign from 1815-1902, centers on the campaigns in the eventful period from 1816-53: the regiments which took part; the tactics employed; and the changing nature of uniforms and equipment.
