Format: Hardcover
This is an excellent, if at times disturbing, study about how the British state and armed forces waged war against anti-colonial rebellions in the immediate post-war era. Some of you may be put off by the 'blurb on the cover, but this is not a piece of hysterical bed-wetting by some Guardianista hack. French is amongst the best historians of the 20th century British Army out there, and his analysis is both fair, and based on a thorough understanding of the archival material. If I were CDS, I would make it a compulsory purchase for all commissioned officers in the UK armed forces, and a recommended one for all NCOs.
