Abstract:

"In Warrior Race, Lawrence James draws on the latest historical and archaeological research, as well as numerous previously untapped resources, to chart the full reach of British military history. He explores the physical and psychological impact of Roman military occupation, the monarchy's struggle for mastery of the British Isles, the civil wars of the seventeenth century, and the 'total war' experience of twentieth-century conflict ... James ... weaves together the many themes of his subject, discussing the rise, survival, and reinvention of chivalry; the literary quest for a British epic; the concept of birth and breeding as qualifications for command in war; and the issues of patriotism and Britain's antiwar tradition"--Publisher's description.
