Few nations can boast a military history with the drama and depth of Britain’s. This book offers an accessible, engaging daily introduction to that pageant for history buffs. With an entry for every day of the year, Armchair General brings British military history to life, telling stories of important British battles or sieges on their anniversaries.
Covering all five continents and traveling from the Vikings to today, the book explores historical turning points like Passhendaele, Yorktown, and Waterloo, but also lesser known conflicts like the Sack of Lindisfarne or the more recent Battle of Musa Qala. For each one, Stuart Thresher offers a summary of the action alongside information about the battle’s context and consequences, political and military alike. Armchair General is the perfect introduction to British military history.
