A Couple of Articles

HI all,

Thought that I'd throw up these as I found them rather interesting an insight into the Army that clawed it's way out of the Boer War and into the new century...

Thank you. The first article is showing its age a bit, in light of recent new info. and analysis. But good, nevertheless.

grumpy,

Not being anything of an expert, what might some examples of "new info" be? Further reading, perhaps?
Cheers,

1. Stemming the Tide edited by Spencer Jones himself.
2. Fire and Movement Peter Hart

3. a lot in the Great War Forum, much of it by Martin Gillott and one Grumpy of that ilk. Worth a search for Le Cateau in particular.

4. Stand To!, journal of WFA issues 100, 101 and 102 by Gillott and Langley on "Reserves", a much misunderstood area, admittedly not part of Jones's thesis.

That should keep you going for a day or two.
