Prince of pleasure : the Prince of Wales and the making of the Regency by Saul David( Book )

14 editions published between 1998 and 2000 in English and Undetermined and held by 517 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The participation of George IV in public affairs had enduring positive influences. His support for overseas campaigns against Napoleon, culminating in such historic victories as Trafalgar and Waterloo, consolidated Britain's status as the preeminent world power amid the great social and economic upheavals of the industrial revolution. His passion for the arts left England with cultural legacies such as the Royal Pavilion in Brighton, Regent's Park and the National Portrait Gallery in London, and the defining architectural image of Regency style. At once farce, tragedy, and melodrama, the story of George IV is depicted with artistry and great force, introducing a cast of contemporary figures such as Beau Brummell, Lord Byron, and Jane Austen
Zulu Hart by Saul David( Book )

16 editions published between 2007 and 2010 in English and Undetermined and held by 458 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Bullied at school for his suspiciously dark skin and lack of a father, Hart soon learns to fight - and win. At eighteen, his world is shaken by his mother's revelation that his anonymous father is willing to give him a vast inheritance - provided he can prove himself worthy of the prize as an officer in the King's Dragoon Guards. At a time when racism and prejudice are rife in Victorian society, Hart struggles to come to terms with his identity. Forced to leave the army, he decides to head to South Africa, and a fresh start. But George Hart has soldiering in his blood, and once in Africa the urge to serve again is strong. Yet now he is caught between two fierce and unyielding forces as Britain drives towards war with the Zulus. Hart must make a choice - and fight for his life."--Publisher description

100 days to victory : how the First World War was fought and won by Saul David( Book )

12 editions published between 2013 and 2014 in English and held by 313 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Saul David's 100 DAYS TO VICTORY is a totally original, utterly engaging account of the Great War - the first book to tell the story of the 'war to end all wars' through the events of one hundred key days between 1914 and 1918. The history of any war is more than a list of key battles and Saul David shows vividly how the First World War reached beyond the battlefield, touching upon events and lives which shaped the conduct and outcome of the conflict. Ranging from the young Adolf Hitler's reaction to the assassination of Archduke Ferdinand, through a Zeppelin raid on Scarborough, the tragic dramas of Gallipoli and the battlefields of the Western Front to the individual bravery of the first Indian VC, Saul David brings people and events dramatically to life. 100 DAYS TO VICTORY is a 360 degree portrait of a global conflict that stretched east from the shores of Britain to the marshes of Iraq, and south from the forests of Russia to the bush of German South East Africa. Throughout his gripping narrative we hear the voices of men and women both eminent and ordinary, some who were spectators on the Home Front, others - including Saul David's own family - who were deeply embroiled in epic battles that changed the world forever. 100 DAYS TO VICTORY is the work of a great historian and supreme story teller. Most importantly, it is also an enthralling tribute to a generation whose sacrifice should never be forgotten."--Publisher's description
Victoria's wars : the rise of empire by Saul David( Book )

15 editions published between 2006 and 2007 in English and held by 284 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

During the period known as the 'Dual Monarchy', from Queen Victoria's accession in 1837 to the death of her husband, Albert, in 1861, the British Empire almost quintupled in size. This is the story of that extraordinary quarter-century of imperial conquest and the people who made it happen. It is, in particular, the story of the two major and nine medium-sized wars that were fought in the name of trade, civilization and the balance of power. In a fast-moving narrative that ranges from the ministries and royal residences of London to the harsh terrain of India, Russia and the Far East, Saul David shows how Britain ruthlessly exploited her position as the world's only superpower to expand her Empire

All the king's men : the British soldier from the Restoration to Waterloo by Saul David( Book )

1 edition published in 2012 in English and held by 147 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The British soldier", wrote a Prussian officer who served with Wellington, "is vigorous, well fed, by nature highly brave and intrepid, trained to the most vigorous discipline, and admirably well armed ... These circumstances explain how this army ... has never yet been defeated in the field". From the Restoration of Charles II in 1660 to the Downfall of Napoleon in 1815, Britain won a series of major wars against France that enabled her to lay the foundations of a global empire. By Waterloo, she was the paramount maritime and industrial power in the world, and would remain so for much of the nineteenth century. This is the story of that extraordinary century and a half of martial success and the people who made it possible: the soldier - kings William III and the first two Georges; the generals Marlborough, Wolfe, Moore and Wellington; and the ordinary British redcoats who - despite harsh service conditions that included low pay, poor housing, inadequate food and brutal discipline - rarely let their commanders down in battles as far afield as Blenheim, Plassey, Quebec and Waterloo

All the king's men : the British Redcoat in the era of sword and musket by Saul David( Book )

5 editions published between 2012 and 2013 in English and held by 66 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Saul David's "All The King's Men" is a thrilling history of the British Redcoat from the English Civil War to Waterloo. Between 1660 and 1815 British supremacy on foreign soil was near total. Central to this success was the humble redcoat soldier who showed heroism in battle and stoicism in peace, despite appalling treatment. This is their story: of brutal discipline and inedible food, of loyalty and low pay, of barracks and battlefield - of victory, defeat, life and death."--Publisher's description

5 editions published between 2013 and 2015 in English and held by 28 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Neil Weir died in 1967, but it was not until 2009 that his grandson ..., discovered his diary and letters among some packing trunks he had been left, and learnt that his grandfather had served as an officer in the 10th Battalion Argyll and Sutherland Highlanders for much of the First World War. A captain and company commander at the tender age of nineteen, he fought at Loos, Ypres, Vimy Ridge, Ploegstreert, and the Somme. At Ploegstreert Wood, Weir's sector contained some of the largest mines ever dug under the German trenches and here the sister battalion he fought alongside was led by Winston Churchill. At Vimy Ridge he was with General Furse where a dud 18lb shell landed at their feet and on the Somme, he was recommended for a D.S.O. and mentioned in Despatches for his role in the attack on Longueval in July 1916 which General Haig called 'the best day we have had in this war.' This was where the troops took up their jump-off positions at night, guided by tape laid out in no man's land, and, protected by an early use of a 'creeping' artillery barrage, they advanced towards the German front line. Badly injured in the trenches later that year, Weir went on to train other young officers for the war, and then worked at the War Office in Whitehall where he went into the section that dealt with the British intervention in the Russian Civil War. ..."--Book jacket of regular print
