(1854-1933) UK soldier, photographer – noted for his images of Native American life – and author, who contributed to The Great War of 189–: A Forecast (2 January-21 May 1891 Black and White as "The Great War of 1892"; dated 1893 but 1892), the main author of the volume being Vice-Admiral Philip Howard Colomb [for supporting authors see Checklist]. It is a highly detailed Future War description of a very wide-flung "Great War" which, beginning in the Balkans, eventually involves Britain, France, Germany and Russia. The text – told as a series of documentary-style reports from various capitals and fronts, usually signed by one of Colomb's various collaborators – is unusually vivid. [JC]
