Abstract:

The senior British generals of the Victorian era were heroes of their time. As soldiers, administrators and battlefield commanders they represented the empire at the height of its power. But they were a disparate, sometimes fractious group of men, exhibiting many of the failings as well as the strengths of the British army of the late nineteenth-century. This study of these eminent military men gives insight into their careers, into the British army of their day and into a now-remote period when Britain was a world power.
