CHRISTMAS BOOK LIST 2016
In the hope of spreading knowledge of new favourites and proven classics from the world of military publishing, the Society has for the third consecutive year assembled a list of military history book recommendations from leading authors working in the field. For the past month, snippets of the list have been posted via our social media platforms in the hope of facilitating the composition of Christmas wish-lists. Now, the whole list is made available for the use of all.
The brief for contributors to this year’s list was to recommend five favourite books on the British Army (including Imperial, Dominion, and Commonwealth forces) and its campaigns. In addition, at the suggestion of our most recent Templer Medal winner, Dr Rory Muir, contributors were also asked to suggest one topic for a book that does not exist but ought to be written: it is hoped that there may be someone amongst the recipients of this list who will take up the challenge and help fill some of the remaining gaps in the existing scholarship.
