During the Victorian Era, Britain's empire covered approximately one quarter of the world's landmass. Such an empire required the development of a powerful army, and this volume explores all aspects of the history of that imperial army from 1815 to 1914, including its many wars, campaigns, military leaders, weaponry, training, and education.
