STORIES OF FAMOUS REGIMENTS., Warner, Philip.

Author Name    Warner, Philip.

Title   STORIES OF FAMOUS REGIMENTS.

Publisher    Arthur Baker, London, (1975).

Seller ID   12957

174 pp, 8vo (8 11/16" H), hard cover in dust jacket. B&w maps, photos, reproductions. "...drawing upon contemporary diaries and reports of campaigns ranging from the Napoleonic Wars, the Crimea, South Africa and India to the First and Second World Wars, (the author) has recreated some of the many acts of heroism performed by the British soldier. Futile though some of them may have eventually proved, such as the infamous Charge of the Light Brigade and the tragic stand at Maiwand, there is no doubting the outstanding courage of their perpetrators. The words of men who were present at the scenes of conflict described here, successful or otherwise, speak more clearly and movingly than any second hand account." Previous owner's name/date on free front endpaper. Dust jacket has minor edge wear. VG+/VG+
