About this Product

The Naval and Military Club - or the 'In & Out' as it is affectionately known - is one of Britain's greatest and oldest service clubs and this book tells its rich and entertaining history for the first time. Lavishly illustrated, it captures the essence of British style inside one of London's grandest clubhouses - first with a famous home in Piccadilly and now in St James's Square. Over 150 years, its members have included numerous Victoria Cross winners, triumphant generals and admirals, even bold explorers. There are intimate tales of brave soldiers and sailors - alongside a few rogues and accounts of scandalous behaviour!

Biographical Note

Tim Newark is the author of several critically acclaimed military history books, including Highlander, The Fighting Irish, The Mafia at War, and Camouflage, which accompanied the Imperial War Museum exhibition. He was the editor of Military Illustrated for 17 years and has written seven TV military history documentary series, including Hitler's Bodyguards.
