'The Bicycle in Wartime' is a landmark work in the field of military history. Complemented throughout with an extensive collection of archival photographs, maps and early book, newspaper and magazine illustrations, this new edition has been revised to include new text and photographs and additional material on 21st century military technology. This book is concerned with three underlying themes. The key concept is that of bicycling, which is fundamental to the role the machine has played in wartime. The military cyclist is not a soldier on wheels, but a soldier with wheels. There is an immense difference. The second theme is how the technology has been exploited and developed for military purposes. Lastly, of special interest, is how the bicycle's use and potential have been perceived. Many military minds dismissed it as irrelevant to warfare, while others adopted it to great effect against their enemies.
