This collection is drawn from the personal papers of Professor Henry Spensor Wilkinson (1853-1937) and traces the rise of modern warfare tactics through correspondence with some of Britain’s most decorated military figures. Wilkinson’s influential position as a military historian and journalist informed his correspondence with a range of military and political figures, including Prime Minister Herbert Asquith, Lord Kitchener, General Ian Hamilton, and Field Marshal William Robertson.
