This is book of a list of British military disasters from Roman times to the fall of Singapore in 1942. Unfortunately, it is a book which did not need to be written because it has been done before and much better by authors such as Geoffrey Regan. The list is not new and each of the subjects has been dealt with in great depth before - only a student of history beginning his studies would find value in this. The author tells each ‘disaster’ as a magazine article and offers no fresh opinions and draws no conclusion, which is a pity because he has the qualifications to do so. It is a nice read as an introduction to other wordy works on the subjects but more experienced history students may be disappointed.
