Note: This list is alphabetical by author. If you are looking for books by a specific author the bookmarks below can get you closer to the part of the alphabet you need. For material pertaining to earlier periods, please check the medieval list. There is also a good deal of British History in the military section. For material on specific modern periods you can go directly to the following short lists, always bearing in mind that some persons/issues inconsiderately stretched themselves over a turn of century. We have tried to put them in the century where they made the greatest impact.
