For anyone interested in British Colonial wars this book is a must. A brief account of all the actions conducted by the British Army from the 18th to 20th Centurys are available to the reader. Its nicely written and easy to find anything specific of interest. For the more popular campaigns, The Boer war Zulu War etc other works maybe more detailed, but here you can find details of almost every engagement from Canada to New Zealand, Africa to China, many of these punative campaigns people will never have heard of. A fascinating insight.
