Achievements of Cavalry
Field Marshal Wood ranks as one of the most eminent soldiers of the Victorian era of the British Empire. He served with distinction in the mud and misery of the Crimean War, the Indian Mutiny, Wolseley's Ishanti War, the Zulu War and in Egypt and the Sudan. His actions on attacking a gang of robbers intent on murdering a local merchant earned him the Victoria Cross - his second recommendation for the V.C.His enduring affection for the cavalry in which he served early in his illustrious career led to him penning two historical works regarding the arme blanche. This work focusses on the historical triumphs of the cavalry deployed on the battlefield from 1794 to 1870, particularly during the Napoleonic Wars and the 1870 Franco-Prussian War. From the field of Marengo in 1800 to the famed "Death Ride" of von Bredow in 1870, Field Marshal Wood retells the events with authenticity and skill.A pacy and engaging read.Author -- Field Marshal Sir Evelyn Wood V.C.
