W. H. Fitchett brings to life some of the most notable clashes of arms between the British and the various enemies that they have fought against, from Minden to the Crimean War, from Blenheim to Salamanca.

“Fights for the Flag is as good as Deeds that Won the Empire. To say more than this in praise of the book before us is unnecessary, for Deeds that Won the Empire was one of the best collections of popular battle studies ever given to the public. Mr. Fitchett shows in Fights for the Flag all the good qualities which he showed in his first volume. There is the same admirable clearness of style, the same comprehensive sympathy, the same power to stir the blood and to paint noble deeds in fitting words. We note, too, the same excellent use of telling quotations. Whenever he can Mr. Fitchett gives what the Generals said in their own words, and not a mere rechauffé of their utterances. Thus Mr. Fitchett’s work, though necessarily short and compressed, is never dull. Again, he shows here, as in his former book, the same power of describing localities and for bringing before one the place of battle. No writer ever had more completely the art of
making one realise how opposing forces move both by land and sea.”-The Spectator
