Created in close cooperation with the Imperial War Museum, this volume commemorates a century of British military service. The tour of duty begins with the Boer War and continues through today’s conflicts in Afghanistan and Iraq. Riveting firsthand accounts and hundreds of rare photographs and illustrations bring the combat experiences of everyday British soldiers alive. One hundred years of weapons, armor, and tactics are explored, along with the great leaders such as Mountbatten and Montgomery. What really sets this book apart are the stories behind such battles as Gallipoli, Cassino, and Goose Green, which are recounted by the men who fought them; their extraordinary words exemplify the legendary gallantry and grit of the British fighting man.
