Description: David & Charles, Newton Abbot, 1973.. 223 pp, large 8vo (9 11/16" H), hard cover in dust jacket. ISBN 0715357115 "45 Victorian campaigns described and illustrated with 79 maps." "From 1837 to 1901 in Canada, Afghanistan, India, Africa, and elsewhere, military expeditions were underta ken to protect British interests, extend a frontier or repel an unprovoked attack. It became in the Victorian era an accepted way of life. In this lively and useful study Donald Featherstone, after defining 'small wars' and describing th e V i c t o r i a n soldier and his weapons, covers all the minor actions in detail. Most of the accounts are complemented by specially drawn maps and plans which have never before been collected together in a single volume."
