Excerpt from A History of the British Army, Vol. 12: 1839-1852 It purports to contain transcripts Of all the documents which came before the governor-general in Council at each meeting, and it is, on the whole, the most disorderly and chaotic assembly of papers that I have encountered in more than thirty years of research. In the first place the volumes are so gigantic, heavy and unwieldy, that it is difficult to read them com fortably in any attitude. In the second, many of the documents before the Council (as is plain from internal evidence) have not been transcribed at all, while others have been copied two or three times over. In the third the transcripts have not been checked, and contain many corrupt passages which cost me much trouble to emend. In the fourth, many of the clerks wrote vile hands, and occasionally one of the idler among them has filled up his exhausted ink-pot with water instead of ink, and has left writing so faint that it can only be read with much suffering to the eyes. In the fifth, there is no index, and, though the volumes are numbered, the pages are not, so that it is impossible to give an accurate reference to them. In the sixth.

Military history is the subject of great popular interest and has been populated by non-academic historians and writers whose work often borders on what might be characterised as military pornography. Indeed, in the media, 'military historian' is a much abused, and all too easily applied term. Popular military history is characterised by often being narrative in structure rather than analytical, and invariably follows a simply explanatory path, is often enamoured of equipment and technology, and tends to place combat centre stage. Such writing is not referenced in this volume. By contrast, academically rigorous military history is characterised by being firmly based on archival/primary source research, on having a firm line of argument or overarching interpretation, on having a wide perspective, and having some comparison with other works in the field. What follows in this volume, therefore, is the integration of the military narrative within the wider political, socio-economic and cultural context. Like any other form of academic history, there can be significant divergence of interpretations between historians, and this will also become apparent, be it the nature of the 'military revolution' in Europe in the sixteenth, seventeenth and eighteenth centuries; the 'learning curve' on the Western Front during the First World War, or the nature of 'total war'.The guide seeks to introduce prospective research students to the debates, issues and resources within the field of military history. While the wider European and global perspectives are not neglected, as will be apparent from the discussion of contexts in Part I, there is an emphasis upon the British experience of war in the early modern, modern and contemporary periods in Part II, the periodisation corresponding approximately to the existence of a standing army in Britain from the seventeenth century onwards, and its origins in the sixteenth century. Nonetheless, an effort has been made to relate the debates on the nature of British military history since 1500 to wider issues connected to other armies. Indeed, one increasing area for study is comparison between the British and other experiences of war. Part III is concerned with sources for the study of British military history, though not just in Britain.

Designed to fill an overlooked gap, this book, originally published in 1972, provides a single unified introduction to bibliographical sources of British military history. Moreover it includes guidance in a number of fields in which no similar source is available at all, giving information on how to obtain acess to special collections and private archives, and links military history, especially during peacetime, with the development of science and technology.
