THE SCOTTISH SOLDIER AND EMPIRE, 1854-1902
by Edward M. Spiers

The Scottish Soldier and Empire, 1854-1902 reflects upon the iconic role of the Scottish soldier as an empire builder from the Crimean War to the end of the nineteenth century. It examines how the soldier commented on this imperial experience, largely through letter, diaries and poems published in the provincial press, how his exploits were reviewed in Scotland and how military achievements contributed to both a growing sense of national identity and a deepening degree of imperial commitment. Amongst the conflicts featured are the wars in South Africa, Afghanistan, Egypt and Sudan, and campaigns in the North-West Frontier

THE CONFEDERACY'S LAST HURRAH
by Wiley Sword

The defeat of General Hood at Spring Hill, Franklin and Nashville. Following the fall of Atlanta, rebel commander John Bell Hood rallied his demoralized troops and marched them off the Tennessee, desperately hoping to draw Sherman after him and forestall the Confederacy's defeat. But Sherman refused to be lured and began his infamous "March to the Sea". In this compelling dramatic account of a final and fatal invasion by the Confederate Army of Tennessee, Sword illuminates the missed opportunities, senseless bloody assaults, poor command decisions, and stubborn pride that resulted in 23,500 Confederate losses.
