VICTORIA’S GENERALS

RRP: £19.99
Easter Sale: £3.99

The group of Generals who commanded the British Army – usually with great success – in the high Victorian era between the Indian Mutiny and the end of the century were heroes of their own time, but are easily overlooked today. This group portrait of talented and charismatic if sometimes eccentric commanders includes Sir Garnett Wolseley, Bobs Roberts, Chinese Gordon of Khartoum, and the great Kitchener. Together they embodied the strengths and weaknesses of the British Army in an era when its main duty lay in policing the far-flung outposts of the British Empire. This book is a balanced examination of the men who held the rods of Empire at its height.
