This handsome guide will be indispensable to all those interested in exploring the legacy of Britain's 2,500-year military history. The featured museums range from major national institutions—like the Imperial War Museum, Portsmouth Royal Dockyard, and the RAF Museum—to exhibitions focused on individual arms, such as the Tank Museum, the major regimental museums, and notable private collections. All Britain's major battlefield sites, from the Roman invasion to the Jacobite rebellions, are included, with a description of each action and Ordnance Survey maps to help visitors trace the stages of the battle in today's landscape. An enormous variety of fortifications are also covered, ranging from prehistoric hill forts to medieval castles, Victorian forts to cold-war bunkers. Information on access, opening times, and admission fees is provided for each site, and the guide, which is regionally organized, is fully mapped. Among Mark Adkin's previous books is The Trafalgar Companion.
