France’s strategic plan to cut Britain’s lifeline to India by seizing Egypt and the Levant was an epic adventure, set amongst some of the most ancient places of history. The conflicts proved, once again, both the supremacy of the British fleet and that a reformed British Army was a force to be reckoned with. Together with an outline of the campaigns, this fascinating book provides a detailed examination of the armies that marched and fought amid the desert sands and relics of earlier civilisations.
