1st ed., 1972. 143 pp., numerous photo-ills., + ills. D.j., 22 x 14cm. Nr.FINE. The King's Own Regiment has been present at many of the most daunting campaigns in history: Minorca in 1756, Salamanca, Waterloo, Inkerman, Sebastopol, the Zulu War, Abyssinia, and Spion Kop in the South African War. At the outbreak of World War I the Regiment boasted 20 battle honours; by the end in 1918 it was to add a further 59. In World War II the Regiment fought at Dunkirk, Syria, North Africa, Italy, Malta, and they penetrated hundreds of miles behind the Japanese lines as Chindits. This book tells their vivid action-packed history.
