245 pp, 8vo (8 3/4" H). B&w illustrations. "(A) carefully researched account of the development of the military police from the Middle Ages to the end of the Boer War. By that time, Provost Marshals were being recognised as Military Police Officers, though full recognition was delayed until 1953. 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 the military 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." Previous owner's small stamp on front pastedown, minor wrinkle at top of spine, minor soiling mark on fore-edge of textblock. Dust jacket is price clipped, has very minor edge wear, light wrinkling at top of spine.
