Summary This book contains everything the well-bred British man needs to know. The contents include day-to-day skills such as how to siege a castle, fire a longbow, correctly clean a Maxim machine-gun, and capture an enemy trench; sporting sciences such as jousting, fencing, and boxing (Queensbury's Rules, of course); domestic essentials such as how to hunt, kill, clean, and cook a wild boar; and priceless secrets of sartorial selection (codpiece-useful for storing your wallet and keys-or cuirass? Top hat or tank jacket?). To British airmen and soldiers, knights and pages, gentlemen and rogues, we say: pip pip and what what! Stiffen your lip and tighten your sword belt! Tie down your trebuchet, and open this manliest of manuals to discover how you too can become a true --man of Britain!
