Available in Stock
Since its foundation in the 17th century, the British Army has regularly fluctuated in numbers with new regiments created and disbanded in times of war and peace. The most extensive reduction came in the period after the Second World War, with the end of National Service and improvements in military technology. This book examines the history and traditions of some of the most famous defunct regiments including the Royal Scots, The Duke of Wellington's Regiment and the Gordon Highlanders.
