The Defence Equation

£12.99

Product description

This volume is a comprehensive analysis of the major elements which made up Britain's defence capability, separately and collectively, at the time of publication. It provides a broad perspective on the British Armed Services and their experiences over the previous 40 years. The basic relationships between the military and their political masters, and between servicemen and the law, provide the background for a detailed examination of particular facets of the three Services. The impact of technology on the RAF; the reorientation of the Navy's role from East of Suez to the Channel and the North Atlantic; the modern relevance of the Army's regimental system; the arguments over the nuclear force - all these are discussed by expert contributors.

Condition: Some minor fading and discoloured patches to cover, otherwise very good condition, pages clean and bright, binding strong
