The British Grenadiers (Hardback)
The Grenadier Guards are the First Regiment of Foot Guards and the closest to the Monarch. This book is published in close cooperation with the Regiment to celebrate their 350th Anniversary. Contains full details of the Regiment's battle honours, key personalities, VC winners, customs and ceremonial role over their long and glorious history, which goes right up to the demands of modern war fighting. Superb illustrations and 'boxes' make this a visual and literary treat.
This excellent publication was honestly a treat to read, as it was packed to the hilt with a more than generous amount of fascinating detail written in a very readable style. Coupled with the wide range of excellent colour and black and white photographs, detailed time lines, maps and reproductions of early paintings, I have no doubt that it will be especially appreciated by both serving and ex Grenadiers, family history researchers, military historians together with militaria and medal collectors alike.Roll of Honour, Michael D. Booker
In a nutshell, it is a concise Regimental History, reference work and photograph album in one beautiful volume, it includes full details of the Regiment’s battle honours, key personalities, Victoria Cross winners and Regimental customs, together with a resume of both its operational and ceremonial roles over its long and distinguished history.
Anyone who has had the honour of serving in this fine Regiment or has any connection with it, will certainly want a copy of this brilliant title - I for one am proud to have it in my own collection!
