This review is from: All the Countries We've Ever Invaded (Kindle Edition)
This is a very well researched introduction to what the British army has been up to for the last few centuries. It is designed for a British audience but it also takes account of the sensibilities of the countries we've invaded. For example, the situation in Cyprus was very well summarised with a balanced view. This can be difficult to do.
It is also well balanced as it describes British military victories as well as our defeats showing that our army wasn't invincible.
It can be a bit tedious to read from cover to cover. This isn't a criticism of the author, it is just that the British army has done much the same thing in every country with a coastline and many without! For this reason, it is better to dip in and out of the book to enjoy this wealth of information.
