From the cover: “One hundred years ago a volume of verse entitled Barrack-Room Ballads by a little known journalist fresh from India, Rudyard Kipling, burst upon the British literary scene. Controversy has marked its progress ever since as succeeding generations discover the ballads. George and Christopher Newark have selected 24 poems with a military theme from Kipling’s prolific output, and commissioned renowned military artist Bryan Fosten to illustrate them. Their efforts are two-fold; to show the many admirers of Kipling’s work exactly how his characters would have looked, and to add a further dimension to Bryan Fosten’s paintings for the devotees of his military art. The illustrations bring “Kipling’s Soldiers” vividly to life and remain as a record of British military uniforms during the life and times of Rudyard Kipling — the unrivalled poet laureate of the barrack room.”
