Whether you are interested in the career of an individual officer, researching medals awarded to a soldier, or just want to know more about a particular battle or campaign, this book will point you in the right direction. Assuming the reader has no prior knowledge of the British Army, its history or organization, Simon Fowler explains what records survive, where they are to be found and how they can help you in your research. He shows how to make the best use of the increasing number of related resources to be found online, and he pays particular attention to explaining the records and the reasons behind their creation, as this information can be very important in understanding how these documents can help your research.

Editorial Reviews

Books Monthly
"More superb advice on tracing your ancestors, this time covering British Army records. We hit a blank wall with many of our own researches, mainly because so many records were lost or destroyed during the second world war. This superb title helps you when the usual records come up short."
