Go to Your God Like a Soldier. The British Soldier Fighting for Empire,1837–1902.


The British army during the Victorian period was the most successful in the world.For sixty years it fought to extend British influence overseas and to maintain the security of the Empire.It was required to fight in an extraordinary variety of harsh environments,from the frozen winter to the hot Indian plains,and against people with very different military traditions,from the Boers to the Maoris,the Russians to the Zulus.The British army had to learn its trade the hard way at the sharp end.
