Allan Mallinson is a former infantry and cavalry officer of thirty-five years' service worldwide. He is the author of the Matthew Hervey series, and of Light Dragoons, a history of four regiments of British Cavalry, one of which he commanded. As well as writing on defence matters for The Times and formerly for the Daily Telegraph, he is a regular reviewer for The Times, the Spectator and the Literary Review.

Review

"Fascinating... clear and concise... important. It is hard to see this book being bettered in the near future" -- Simon Heffer DAILY TELEGRAPH "I learned a lot" -- Jeremy Paxman OBSERVER "This is no mere paperback edition of Mallinson's acclaimed 2009 hardback. He presents a revised and updated version that no self-respecting defense commentator can risk being without" THE TIMES "A compelling history of the British Army" -- Emmanuelle Smith FT "Mallinson is surely right to stress the one enduring quality of the British Army: 'operational resilience'" -- Saul David SPECTATOR
