MEDIA REVIEWS

Well grounded in the archives, this is an important study both of the relationship between the monarch and military and of the British army as it struggled to cope with the consequences of repeated wars, international competition, and technological and institutional change.

--Jeremy Black "Professor of History, University of Exeter "

Farrell's comprehensively researched and convincingly reasoned analysis establishes Cambridge as not a onedimensional reactionary but as a central figure in the complex redefinition of the relationship of armed forces, crown, and Parliament during the mid-Victorian era.

--Dennis Showalter "coeditor of If the Allies Had Fallen: Sixty Alternate Scenarios of World War II "
