Excerpt from A History of the British Army, Vol. 4: Second Part Continued From the Fall of the Bastille to the Peace of Amiens, 1789 1801

IN offering to the public this new instalment of the History of the Britt's/z Army, I feel constrained to accompany it with an apology. Six years ago I expressed my hope that I should tell the whole of my story down to the year 1870 in four volumes; and now the fourth volume proves to have carried the narrative no further than to the year 1803. I know not what plea to advance in my excuse, except the sheer ignorance avowed on a famous occasion by Dr. Johnson. I can only say that, until I had dug deep into the huge mass of military manuscripts at the Record Office, I had no conception either of the tasks that were set by Pitt to the British Army nor of the vast amount of work - thankless, indeed, and un profitable - which it did, or strove to do, during the first ten years of the war of the French Revolution.
