Going to War overturns conventional views of the role of public opinion, the armed forces, parliamentarians, NGOs and writers in the formation of British debates about impending wars. It shows the pressures and the reasons which have led to Britain's involvement in so many conflicts.

MEDIA REVIEWS

' It is not easy in a thousand words to do justice to Philip Towle's latest book ... it offers a rich and often absorbing account of decisions to go to war made by British governments over the last 200 years. It is a taut book, written with remarkable economy [yet] the ground covered is extensive and his survey is typified by wide knowledge and a searching fairness.'

- Hugh Berrington, RUSI Journal
