General Sir Hughie Stockwell was not only a very popular figure but arguably the most successful and experienced commander of his generation. His abilities were recognised during the Second World War by meteoric promotion: after Norway, he became Commandant of the Special Training Centre at Lochailort in 1941 and went on to command a battalion during the brilliant 1942 Madagascar invasion, 29 Brigade in Burma, and, by 1944, 82nd (West African) Division, also in Burma. In doing so he won a DSO, CB, CBE, and three mentions in dispatches.
This long overdue biography, written by an experienced operational general, demands to be read and not just for the life achievements of its subject. Drawing on previously untapped sources, it is a superb study of command. Fresh light is also thrown on Gubbins' Norwegian operations, the invasion of Vichy French Madagascar, the activities of 82nd (West African) Division, who surely deserve the title of 'Forgotten Army', and Templer's achievements as Supremo in Malaya.

The Napoleonic War Journal Of Captain Thomas Henry Browne 1807 - 1816

"The Napoleonic War Journal Of Captain Thomas Henry Browne 1807 - 1816" edited by Roger Norman Buckley

Thomas Henry Browne (1787-1855) was born in Liverpool, the eldest of seven children. He was the son of George Browne and Felicity Wagner, a highly cultured woman whose father had been the "Imperial and Tuscan Consul at Liverpool". The family originally came from County Cork in Ireland but moved to Liverpool where George became an important merchant. In around 1800 the business suffered severe financial setbacks and the family moved to North Wales.

Thomas Browne joined Wellington's staff in 1811 and in the following year was appointed Deputy Assistant Adjutant-General. The journal therefore starts with Thomas Browne as a first lieutenant who gets his promotion to captain shortly before the Battle of Vitoria. It ends in 1816, after Napoleon's return from Elba and the battle of Waterloo (in which Browne did not participate) when he was in Vienna as ADC to Lord Steward. Shortly afterwards, he became private Secretary to the Embassy. He returned to England in that year.

The book is very ably edited by Professor Buckley. In the preface he tells us something about Browne, his personality as well as his family and regimental backgrounds. This is followed by an extensive introduction explaining the new professionalism of the British army, the effects of drill to achieve unquestioned compliance and reflex responses to commands. This in turn made it possible for soldiers to engage in warfare at point blank range, which was one of the characteristics of armed conflict at the time. The nature of Napoleonic warfare is aptly described as a trial of strength lasting several hours, fought on a narrow terrain with fearsome and bloody results. Prof. Buckley describes them as "large scale pounding matches to the death", with heavy casualties on both sides.
