Reviews

a 'who, what, when, where and why
of military events in Britain from the Romans to the present day. (Family Tree Magazine

, September 2007) Although the chapter titles and subtitles are jokey, the content is solidly descriptive...a very useful one-volume reference book. (Ancestors, November 2007)
