The Armies of Asia and Europe by Upton, Emory

1878 1st Edition published by D. Appleton

Embraces official reports on the militaries of: Japan, China, India, Persia, Italy, Russia, Austria, Germany, France and England. On July, 1875, Brevet Major-General Emory Upton, Lieutenant-Colonel Fourth Artillery, United States Army, was ordered by the Secretary of War to proceed with two junior officers on a tour of eighteen months to India, China, and Japan, and the camps of instruction and military schools of Italy, Germany, Austria, Russia, France, and England, in order to examine and report upon the organization, tactics, discipline, and maneuvers of the armies in the countries mentioned.

 The merit of General Upton's work does not consist in exhibiting the results of original investigation, or in such vivid description as might have been hoped for from his actual inspection, but he presents in one volume what before to the American reader could only be culled from numerous reports, lists, and treatises in several languages.
