Comments: The author served through all the latter part of the Great War with the Eleventh Hussars and so was in a significant position of authority to write this important history of the Regiment’s services during that conflict.
He begins by setting the scene of the Regiment’s home service from 1908 up to 1914, and continues to examine in separate chapters The Retreat from Mons, 1914; The Retreat Continued; Nery, 1914; The Marne and The Aisne, 1914; The Advance to the North, 1914; Messines, 1914; Ypres, 1914-1915; Waiting for a Gap, 1915-1917; The Battle of Cambrai and the Winter of 1917-1918; The March Retreat, 1918; The Advance to Victory, 1918; Germany, 1918-1919; Egypt and India, 1919-1926; and the final chapter discusses the transformation of the Hussars to an armoured-car regiment, 1926-1934.
Several of the plates have been made during visits to the battlefields. Maps have been drawn to illustrate nearly every event, several of which are folding, and the numerous appendices will be an everlasting record of the individual performances of the Officers, N.C.O.’s and Men who served in the Regiment during the period covered.
