Volume 1: Infantry by Victor Sutcliffe
Part handbook, part sourcebook, part history book, Regiments of the British Army provides a potted history of all the regiments in the British Army in three volumes.
Each section contains a brief historical outline of the regiment, with details of names, mottos, badges, dress distinctions, music, nicknames and major engagements.
Army historians will find the comprehensive bibliography an invaluable reference point. Family historians looking for more information on their ancestors’ service will find a phenomenal catalogue of possible sources, a route through the confusing morass of regimental names and a clearer understanding of their ancestors’ role in history.
The first volume of Victor Sutcliffe’s monumental work focuses on infantry. With over 2,500 entries, it has already superseded A.S. White’s standard work: Bibliography of the Regimental Histories of the British Army.
