Regimental histories abound, but few can be as stirring as this story of the fortunes of the famous Yorkshire-based Green Howards.

Raised in 1688 in response to a call for loyal troops, the Green Howards have maintained their tradition of loyalty over the past 300 years winning many superb battle honours. Their history reflects that of the British Army as there is hardly a major campaign that this Regiment has not been involved in; the French Wars of 1697-1793, the American War of Independence, Crimean War, First and Second World Wars, service in Suez, Malaya, Northern Ireland, peacekeeping operations in Bosnia and the war in the Gulf.

This fine book brings the story of one of Britain's finest regiments right up to date.

This regimental history is well written and full of the information. If you have an interest in the Green Howards this is definitely a book you should have on your bookshelf.

Wargames Illustrated - reviewed by Dom Sore

This book would appeal to anyone vaguely interesting in British military history, regardless of whether you are a Green Howard follower or not, as well as of course, those readers looking to delve deeper into the subject. I say that because this book is no less a regimental history of a great regiment, but indeed a military history of Great Britain, bar for a few conflicts of course, but you can’t always have everything! All in all, the book is well presented and written, with history bursting from its pages… quite literally!
