"...a carefully researched account of the development of the military police from the Middle Ages to the end of the Boer War.

Military historians on both sides of the Atlantic will find much that is new in Major Tyler's authoritative text, while past or present members of t h e m i l i t a r y police will be fascinated to learn of the centuries-old traditions of their calling and the proud, if ruthless, actions of so many of their predecessors."
