The Old West Country Regiments (11th, 39th and 54th)

Drawing on the distinguished records of the three original West Country Regiments, this delightful and substantial book brings together a superb and varied collection of military anecdotes. Reflecting Britain’s Imperial history, these cover empire building in India, the American War of Independence, the Napoleonic era, the Crimean, Zulu and Boer Wars, as well as the horrors and heroism of The Great War.

As fascinating as the events and battles themselves is the rich cast of Regimental characters: selfless heroes mix with spies, explorers, scientists, radical agitators and philanderers. Whatever their experiences, exploits and the occasional scandal, what they all have in common is service, both to Crown and also to the Regiment.
Lovingly researched and compiled by Jeremy Archer, with some 340 illustrations, of which many are in colour, The Old West Country Regiments is a hugely satisfying and entertaining read, richly deserving of a place on the bookshelves of every military enthusiast, particularly those who served in these, or the successor, Regiments.

“I enjoyed The Old West Country Regiments very much: it is simply full of real gems, admirably researched and beautifully presented” - Richard Holmes
