Victoria’s Enemies
An A-Z of British Colonial Warfare
By Donald Featherstone and
published: 1989

This book provides a overview of Britain’s overseas wars and campaigns on five continents between 1837 and 1901. The book examines: tactics, weapons, uniforms or battle dress and equipment; all this in short, easily digestible chapters. This is the type of book that I won’t sit down and read cover to cover; I find it perfect to keep at hand, on the reading table, to pick up and consume a chapter at a time and usually not in any specific order. If you have an interest in British Colonial warfare, I recommend this book for your library, while not currently in print (at least not as far as I know) it is easy enough to find in used bookshops (online or otherwise).
