Millions of words have been written about the Empire, but its extent, power and influence is still poorly understood. The Rev Anthony Hathaway-Taylor has gone one step further by applying that simple idea that a picture can truly be worth a thousand words. By tracing the development of much of the British Empire through images, he has not only made a valuable contribution to our understanding, but produced a truly beautiful work. I certainly look forward to using the naval and military contents of this book.
