Oman wrote this 1895 history out of a conviction, as he writes in his introduction, "that there may still be room for a single-volume history . . . which neither cramps the earlier annals of our island . . . nor expands the last two centuries into an unmanageable bulk."  The New York Times called his effort "extremely satisfactory."

Sir Charles William Chadwick Oman (1860-1946) was a British military historian.  His meticulously researched histories are invested with a lively human sympathy which engenders a novelistic feel.  Among his chief works were The Art of War in the Middle Ages (1885) and History of the Peninsular War (1902-03).  He was knighted in 1920.
