Summary

This authentic 1914 training manual by Robert Baden-Powell, who later founded the modern scouting movement, draws heavily on his experiences as a British officer from 1876-1910. Advocating a training system based on Edwardian moral values, Baden-Powell emphasizes the "the four Cs": Courage, Common sense, Cunning, and Cheerfulness--qualities that would prove of little value in the conflagration about to engulf Europe. Full of engaging anecdotes and poignant glimpses of a bygone age, Quick Training for Waroffers modern readers a unique insight into the mindset of the British officer class at the outset of World War I.

Author Biography

Robert Baden-Powell OM, GCMG, GCVO, KCB was a lieutenant-general in the British Army, and, famously, the founder of the Scout Movement. He served in the British Army from 1876-1910 in India and Africa, and these experiences served as the basis for many of his writings on military tactics, training, doctrine, and scouting techniques. His book Scouting for Boys is the fourth bestselling book of all time.
