Forlagets beskrivelse
Excerpt from Our Fighting Services and How They Made the Empire

It was, however, mainly due to William Howard Russell, the Times correspondent in the Crimea, to his moral courage, his eloquence, and to his graphic and truthful letters, that the soldiers of sixty years ago became known. Russell de scribed not only the brilliant valour of the Rank and File, but also the patient, enduring heroism of our naked, starving remnants of battalions in the terrible winter of 1854-5.

Now that Counties have been given a direct interest in their regiments, and several millions of men have enlisted, the Soldier, like the Sailor, has become an integral part of the Nation. We, therefore, think that it is possible that some of the Public may wish to peruse a short history of the campaigns and battles fought, to extend and retain our possessions, by the predecessors of those valiant souls who are now striving to maintain the liberties of the Empire.

It will not in any way detract from the renown of our men when we Show that the stubborn, innate courage of the British sailors and soldiers was not the only factor in many cases where victories were won against vastly superior forces. In addition to the inspiring example of self sacrifice in all, superior administration, forethought, and tactical skill on the part of the leaders, together with better discipline in the ranks of the smaller force. Often turned the scale in its favour.
