The Cambridge Geographical Series originated in the late nineteenth century as a means of providing introductory guides to a broad variety of topics. In this volume, which was first published in 1899, the focus is on theories and principles in military geography as they existed at the time of publication. The text is consummately researched, containing a wealth of examples from various conflicts together with numerous illustrative figures. It is also highly readable, being primarily aimed at the general reader. This is a fascinating document that will be of value to anyone with an interest in military geography, military history, and the complexities surrounding conflict.
