"The Victorians at War, 1815-1914 is the definitive guide to the British Army during the Pax Britannica, the century of British world domination from the time of Wellington's victory at Waterloo to the eve of World War I." "Of interest to military historians and the general reader alike, The Victorians at War, 1815-1914 synthesizes the key events, campaigns, and personalities of history's largest empire during its most powerful and expansionist era. Spanning a full century of British military history, this book is a comprehensive and unique guide to the battles, commanders, forces, and military technology that established Britain as the 19th century's preeminent superpower."--BOOK JACKET.
