Description

This book will be indispensable to all those interested in exploring the legacy of Britain's incredibly varied and exciting military history, which extends over more than 2,500 years. The museums featured 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 or the Fleet Air Arm Museum, the major regimental museums and notable private collections. All the major known battlefield sites in Britain, from the Roman invasion to the Jacobite rebellions, are included, with a description of each action and 1:25 000 Ordnance Survey maps to help visitors trace the different stages of the battle in today's landscape. An enormous variety of fortifications are covered, ranging from prehistoric hill forts to medieval castles, Victorian forts, Second World War defence lines to Cold War bunkers. Information on access, opening times and admission charges is given for each site and the gazetteer is organised on a regional basis, with maps showing the location of the sites in relation to major towns and roads. There are also feature spreads on a wide variety of topics such as the Roman army, Celtic hill forts, the Martello Towers, invasion defences, medieval warfare, the Antonine Wall and many others.
