That Astonishing Infantry: The History of the Royal Welsh Fusiliers 1689-2006


In stock


By Michael Glover and Lt. Gen Jonathon Riley

 In this new edition, based on the late Michael Glover’s work, the story of the Regiment is brought up to March 2006 when the Royal Welch Fusiliers ceased to exist as an independent entity. Lieutenant General J P Riley has edited the work and added a new chapter covering the end of the Cold War to the amalgamation in 2006. This turbulent period includes the Regiment’s service in the Balkans and Iraq. Annexes have been revised and expanded, and the text is enhanced by photographs, many in colour, line drawings, maps and sketches by Kyffin Williams.
