Description

Excerpt from England's Battles by Sea and Land, From the Commencement of the Great French Revolution to the Present Time: With a Retrospective View of the Celebrated Epochs of British Military History, Including Our Indian Campaigns, and the Present Expedition Against Russian Aggression in the East Such is the design of the Work to which we invite a nation's attention in the time of strife, of self-denial, and (it may be, to some extent) of peril. Is it not wise, we ask, to review past struggles, and to glean from them the lessons they yield for our guidance now? The unthinking clamours of a people have sometimes driven governments into unnecessary wars; while, at other times, the fear of increased taxation has generated such a love of peace, as to endanger the national respect. With a people better informed with regard to its history, and the causes of the storm now about to pass over Europe, this will not be again.
