dc.description.abstract This thesis has traced the attitude held by the British people toward the army from the Cromwellian Period to the military reforms following war in 1854-55. This paper has studied the association between a negative public sentiment toward the army, as expressed in the parsimony of Parliament, and the inadequacies which existed in the British Army. An inquiry has been made into the military catastrophes, which were brought before the public eye during the Crimean Campaigns, and the change in attitude toward the army and military reform. The study has also reviewed the political reforms in Parliament and their effects on the military system.In developing the thesis an intensive investigation of Hansard's Parliamentary Debates, 1815-1872 has been undergone to consider the change in relationship between the British Parliament and the military forces of the British Crown.
