Overview

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 honors. 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.
