Horse Drawn Transport of the British Army by D.J. Smith
Book DescriptionHorse-drawn vehicles have played an essential role in the transport of military stores since ancient times, yet the British Army did not have a permanent royal transport corps until the Crimean War in the nineteenth century. Beginning from this period, this book explores the variety of horse-drawn vehicles used by the British Army, from the general service wagons and water carts, to the specialised horse ambulance and the travelling field cooker. Using line drawings to explain the equipment and construction methods, and illustrated with black and white photographs throughout, D. J. Smith reveals the vital role played by these wagons and carts for centuries until the introduction of motor vehicles in the World War I gradually superseded them.
