About this title


'Go to Your God Like a Soldier' presents a complete picture of British military experience between 1837, when Victoria was called to the throne, until the end of the Boer War in 1902, the year after her death. It examines the way of life of ranker and officer alike, their reasons for enlisting, what they had in common and the barriers that divided them, their daily routine, food, pay and recreations, and how society viewed them. Covering all the major campaigns of the period, it reveals how the Army functioned, and the developments in composition, tactics and weaponry that changed it from an essentially Napoleonic institution into a reasonably modern army, all within the reign of one monarch. Eyewitness evidence, rich in the flavour of the times, brings the subject vividly to life. 'Go to Your God Like a Soldier' is an enthralling account of a crucial period in the development of the British Army, and its influence on all other nations.
