Comments: Volume one of a projected three-volume reference for British Army regiments. This volume focuses on the infantry regiments. The author’s stated aim is to “…trace the steps by which the regiments of 1914 evolved into the regiments that exist today…and provide information about the origins of the regiments of 1914.” (Preface).
The text includes details of all regiments, including short-lived units and those that have been disbanded. In addition, there are references for about three thousand books, including approximately one thousand not listed in A.S. White’s bibliography. This is a new hard cover copy without dust jacket, as issued.
