Coming of Age presents the early history of the Army Service Corps of the British Army by means of a unique collection of some 540 images, mainly contemporary postcards. The conduct of war changed dramatically in the late Victorian era, after the debacle in the Crimean War and humiliating setbacks in the Boer War. Commanders realized the vital importance of logistics in any campaign. The formation of the ASC marked a significant milestone in the modernisation of the Army and it was fortunate that by the outbreak of The Great War the Corps was well established in the Order of Battle. The development and introduction of mechanical transport was to play a vital role throughout the 1914 - 1918 war and the ASC was pivotal to this. The images displayed in this superb book represent life in the ASC at a crucial period of its history. They show the personal side of soldiering as opposed to the more formal official perspective. All have been collected and captioned by the author who is the foremost expert on the Corps history. The result is a stunning array of images that capture military life as it was over 100 years ago.
