Charles E. Callwell and the British Way in Warfare

Research output: Book/ReportBook


Daniel Whittingham presents the first full-length study of one of
Britain’s most important military thinkers, Major-General Sir Charles
E. Callwell (1859–1928). It tells the story of his life, which included
service in military intelligence, the South African War, and on the
General Staff before and during the First World War. It also presents
the first comprehensive analysis of his writing: from his well-known
books Small Wars (1896) and Military Operations and Maritime
Preponderance (1905), to a host of other books and articles that are
presented here for the first time. Through a study of Callwell’s life and
works, this book offers a new perspective on the nature and study of
military history, the character of British strategy, and on the army to
which he belonged.
