The Further Training and Employment of Mounted Infantry ana Yeomanry.

By Major-General Parr. Second Edition. (Gale and Polden. 1s. 6d.)—Though this is a second edition we must draw attention to it, because the employment of mounted infantry has had to be reconsidered by our military leaders. Too often they were viewed with contempt. A Volunteer officer who was very proud of his mounted infantry had to give them up, and we can imagine the criticism passed on them by the inspecting officer, who had probably no more idea of their • real use or handling than the man in the moon. This is the true reason of their eclipse till war against a nation of mounted infantry proved how essential they are. Major-General Parr's little guide is much to the point, being succinct and lucidness itself.
