China Medal Roll 1856-60: British Army
K.J. Asplin


This volume deals with the British Army and their presence in China during the years 1856-60, a period that became known as the 'War of the Arrow' or the Second China War. It contains not only a detailed medal roll of officers and other ranks of the British Army entitled to the China Medal 1856-60, but extracts from diiaries and works of the time that add an extra dimension to any research project. The author has compiled information on over 13,000 men of the Army, including casualty details, from multiple original records, with the addition of a detailed bibliography. This is an essential research tool for anyone with an interest in these campaigns.

This is a companion volume to two other publications: 'China Medal Roll 1856-60: Royal Navy' and 'Despatches of the China War 1856-60'
