Between 1869 and 1874, Edward Cardwell, Gladstone's Secretary for War,
undertook major reforms to modernise the British Army. The Crimean War, and
campaigns in India, had revealed serious administrative and command
shortcomings. Cardwell's legislation was aimed at curing these faults and served
as the foundation of a new-style army. His successors put into practice further
improvements in tactics, training and command structure and by the outbreak of
war in 1914, the British Army had developed into one of the best professional
fighting forces in Europe. This book details the development, composition and
uniforms of this 'new' army. Contents: Introduction * Command
Structure * Composition * Orders of Battle * Colour plates by Gerry
Embleton.
