H Elliott, of the 3rd Bengal Cavalry, Indian Army. The fruit of the authors clearly wide and discursive reading, the book ranges from Xenophons treaty on cavalry in the ancient world up to the recent Franco-Prussian War. In addition there is an extra chapter on the use of dismounted cavalry, and an extensive bibliography of 19th century works on the cavalry. Anyone interested in mounted warfare should read this book.
