Description


'For England & St George' is primarily a history of the past 30-odd years in the life of an infantry regiment of the British Army, as seen through the eyes and told in the words of those who have served in the Royal Regiment of Fusiliers. This period has roughly coincided with the emergence of the British Army as a wholly professional force of volunteers.

The book features detailed descriptions of operations in Northern Ireland, the Gulf War, and the Balkans, including many eyewitness accounts by the soldiers themselves. The text is accompanied by hundreds of color and b/w photographs from the private collections of members of the Regiment.

This history of the Royal Regiment of Fusiliers (formed in 1968) over three decades of counter-revolutionary and conventional warfare, peace support operations, and the daily life and concerns of the regimental family reveals-as far as is possible to outside observers-something of its soul, and thus of the unique qualities of the British regimental system.
