Rep., with corrections, 1987. 208 pp., 30 photo-plates + 22 maps. D.j., 22 x 14cm. V.G. The British Army has been continually in action somewhere in the world since 1945. This book covers its campaigns in Palestine in 1947, and then in succession those in Malaya, Kenya, Cyprus, Aden, the Persian Gulf, Borneo, Guyana, Belize and Northern Ireland. In the main it covers counter-insurgency operations, and therefore excludes such campaigns as Suez or the Korean War, each of which involved other armies. Illustrated with photographs.
