IN WAREHOUSE - Usually Ships in 3-7 Business Days


This is a Regimentally published title that follows the Rifle Brigade and its exploits throughout the Second World War. Compiled by appropriate officers of the regiment, this is a day-to-day account of men in battle. Of a more intimate Regimental Chronicle style than the work of Major Hastings, it pleases with the first-hand telling of the Regiment's achievements narrated by seasoned officers who were in the thick of the fighting, from the dark days of the Defence of Calais in 1940, through the Western Desert and Tunisia, and on to North West Europe and the pursuit over the Rhine into the heart of Germany.

For convenience we have bound both volumes of this history into one binding. A full listing of Honours and Awards, many with citations, fills pages 55-174 in Volume 2.
