From the ‘New Model Army’ of Oliver Cromwell in 1942 following the aftermath of the first battle of the English Civil War in Edgehill, former soldier Allan Mallinson shows us the people and events that have shaped the British Army that we know today. Mallinson shows how history continues to repeat itself, linking how Marlborough’s historic victory at Blenheim to Wellington’s at Waterloo; how the fight at Rorke’s Drift in 1879 highlighted the heroism of the forces at Arnhem in 1944; and why Montgomery’s victory at El Alamein still matters today.
Appealing to a variety of readers, from complete beginners on the subject to experts who want to engage with new lines of thought, this is British history at its most relevant.
