Product description

In the 1930s and 1940s, the military historian and strategic analyst Basil Liddell Hart developed a thesis which claimed that Britain possessed a historic tradition in warfare, or as he wrote, a 'Way in Warfare'. This book offers the first detailed test of the historical credibility of Liddell Hart's thesis within the period which he identified as its historical foundation: the late 17th and 18th centuries. In this way, the book plugs a lacuna in the history and understanding of British warfare. Keith McLay's analysis shows how, during the reigns of William and Anne, there is merit in understanding British warfare through the lens of a 'Way in Warfare'.
