Most widely held works by Brian Gardner
The East India Company: a history by Brian Gardner( Book )

29 editions published between 1971 and 1998 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,184 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The East India company - there has never been an enterprise like it. It ruled over nearly one-fifth of the world's population; possessed its own army and navy, its own civil service, even its own church; became the most powerful military force in Asia, and had a revenue greater than that of Britain. It was in Brian Gardener's words, "a government owned by businessmen, the shares in which were daily bought and sold." -- Book Jacket (inside flap)

Churchill in power, as seen by his contemporaries by Brian Gardner( Book )

6 editions published between 1968 and 1970 in English and Undetermined and held by 755 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

One of the important purposes of this book is to debunk the legend that Churchill during the war was the embodiment of the will of the people, that he led the free world virtually united behind him to victory. In fact, from 1940 on he led an increasingly discordant nation. He confronted a persistent chorus of criticism and personal attacks. The portrait skillfully developed here shows how the immense popularity he had enjoyed in 1940 declined to a low point by 1942, when Japanese successes in the Pacific and Allied reversals in Africa and Europe combined with charges against Churchill of dictatorial control at home. -- Taken from book jacket

"Field Marshal Edmund Henry Hynman Allenby, 1st Viscount Allenby GCB, GCMG, GCVO (23 April 1861 ? 14 May 1936) was a British soldier and administrator. He served in the Second Boer War and then on the Western Front during the First World War. He went on to lead the Egyptian Expeditionary Force during the Sinai and Palestine Campaign in the conquest of Palestine and Syria in 1917 and 1918 winning a victory at the Battle of Megiddo. T. E. Lawrence ("Lawrence of Arabia"), whose efforts with the Arab Revolt were greatly aided by Allenby, thought highly of him: "(He was) physically large and confident, and morally so great that the comprehension of our littleness came slow to him"."--Wikipedia
