The Story of the Empire
by Edward Salmon
Publisher: George Newnes 1902
Number of pages: 183
The story about the dramatic development of the British dominions, east, west and south, from the time of Henry VII. to that of Edvard VII. This is not intended as a textbook, but should rather be regarded as a swiftly moving panorama to particular points in which one may hope at some future time to return for closer acquaintance.

Since, in the early stages of school work, it is more important to present some of the fundamental historic ideas than to give any outline of events, this collection of stories may provoke readers to discussion and further inquiry.

The Wars of the Roses were dynastic wars for the throne of England. They were fought between two rival branches of the royal House of Plantagenet, the houses of Lancaster and York. They were fought in several sporadic episodes between 1455 and 1487.
Front Line is a tale of individual effort and performance. This book was produced whilst Britain was in the thick of World War 2, and victory was by no means certain. The text is undoubtedly morale boosting propaganda, but it is a fascinating read.

I have endeavoured in the space at my disposal to show how the British Army has grown up. I have tried merely to tell a 'story', and therefore omitted much that might have been said regarding the noble work the Queen's Army has done.
