More used to ceremonial duties than armed conflict in 1914, the prestigious Household Cavalry and Guards regiments of the British Army were amalgamated into a single Guards Division and pitched into active service from the earliest engagements of the First World War to the last. This illustrated history chronicles their wartime activities, profiles notable actions and personalities and contains many contemporary photographs, portraits, paintings and maps. Foreword by HRH The Duke of Edinburgh.
