From Roundheads to Trenches:the revolving transformations of the British Army from 1645-1913Foreword:I realize this paper is probably "all-encompassing" in an almost overkill manner; however, there a few reasons that a 10-12 page term paper spiraled into 60 pages. First, I wrote this paper while deployed to Iraq during Operation Iraqi Freedom, Phase I, from March to December 2003. Because of this, I worked sporadically on the paper while executing my daily duties and responsibilities and while completing three other college courses. These spurts of reading, writing, and note taking made it difficult to 'keep it brief' as I was never sure of when I would have the chance to pick-up my work again, and then whether or not I would remember what I had already read, wrote, or comprehended. Therefore, this paper was actually written in spurts, and once I had the opportunity to splice it altogether into one document from three different computers and over six different files, I had a difficult time in deleting or cutting out what was originally already in print. Some of the information I left in may not be completely appropriate to the topic at hand, however, it is still appropriate enough that I felt important to include in my original thought process, and felt it would be an injustice to eliminate the 'flow' by chopping out paragraphs. For example, I realize I spent too much discussion on the American Revolution, but felt it was important for two reasons: It was the first white-on-white war the British were involved in away from Europe, and it saw the introduction of an enemy that did not assume the 'traditional' manner of warfare was necessary--and the result was a bloody, vicious total war. We have, since November 25, worked in the Multi-National Division (South East) Headquarters, headquartered by a command and control element that is majority British military. This served to heighten my curiosity and I spent many hours in the dining facility picking the brains of British soldiers and officers, learning more as I went, and hoping to capture those discussions in my paper. As I was closing out the Boer War section I also met a civilian contracted Personal Security Detachment agent who was a former drug enforcement agent of the South African police force. He shed more light on the deadly marksmanship that the Boer farmers loosed on the British Army, which I found amazing considering the degree of efficiency with which the British Army executed its rifle volleys. The impact upon the British Army's push to incorporate this intense rifle training was not really pursued in either of the main text I was referencing for this paper, and Sergeant Major (WO2) McKnight was a valuable source of filling in the gaps. My only regret is not the length of the paper, but that I was unable to resource more material to flush out the facts and reforms, and that I actually did delete the 'paper within a paper' that I originally had, that included not just Army...
