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!
