Privately Published, Newton Abbot, 1st ed., Thus, 1994. 806 pp., military insignia ills. Maroon faux leather ; gilt title + t.e.g. ; 3 cold., silk ribbons ; 24 x 15cm. FINE. 2500 entries, all comprehensively cross-indexed, comprise this outstanding bibliography of published works about the forces of the British Empire and the Commonwealth. This Privately Printed publication is the result of years of extensive research by over two hundred historians from around the world that was then compiled by Roger Perkins. The work is a follow-up to "Regiments of the Empire - A Bibliography of their Published Histories" which the compiler of this work felt needed more research on the units of Canada and Australia. This book details the construction and contents of every unit history ever published by or for the regiments and corps of the former Dominions and Colonies. It includes concise but detailed summaries of their active services, notes on their Rolls of Honour, awards won, reviews of the books featured and a code indicating how rare the book is, it’s value in research and a library where at least one copy can be found since most of these unit histories are long out of print. This is an exceptional and invaluable source of reference.
