HEATHCOTE Tony, The British Field Marshals 1736-1997: a Biographical Dictionary


<i>© Pen & Sword</i>

© Pen & Sword

Description:  
From the publishers:
As General Sir Charles Guthrie (the first soldier to be denied promotion to Field Marshal on appointment to Chief of Defence Staff) observes in his foreword, Dr Tony Heathcote's reference work embraces the history of the British Army over the last 250-300 years. It covers not only the careers of key individuals but provides an understanding of their contribution to the successes and failures of our military past. [...] Alongside the household names of the great strategists and distinguished leaders lie little known and forgotten figures, who gained their exalted rank by either luck, accident of birth or diplomatic gesture.

This week’s book(s):

Description:  
From the publishers:
 
"...The French Piedmontese campaign in 1859 was carefully coordinated by the two powers. It required meticulous political and military planning to succesfully wage war and oust the Habsburgs from the Italian peninsula. This war is often overlooked in military histories outside of Italy, and overshadowed by the American Civil War and the Wars of German Unification. Nevertheless, the Second War of Italian Independence witnessed the first strategic and operational use of railroads, steamships, rifled muskets and artillery. Furthermore, the battles fought in 1859 involved the largest armies since the Napoleonic Wars..." In Italian and English.
