When war broke out in 1939, Britain's army had fewer than 900,000 men; by 1943 it was a well-equipped and powerful fighting force of three million men and women. Starting with a brief historical background, this illustrated overview of the Army during the Second World War covers mobilization and training; higher organization; divisional organizations; HQs and Staff; combat arms; the individual soldier and his weapons and equipment; tactics; vehicle markings, flag codes and camouflage; and the women's Corps.
