View: 7117This is an account of the formation of Prince Albert's Regiment of Light Infantry in 1685, and of its subsequent services to 1848. Richard Cannon was a chief clerk in the adjutant's office of The Horse Guards and was tasked to write a history of every serving regiment in the British Army at that point in the nineteenth century. The author of this teaching book maintains that many people go through life handicapped when it comes to their ability to write fluently. The argument is that many pupils never learn the basics of good posture and practice when it comes to the physical act of writing. The book is an attempt to correct that.

View: 2682The story of a typical infantry battalion of a county regiment as they fought their way from the beaches of Normandy to the River Elbe. In the proud words of Lt. Gen. G.I. Thomas, their divisional commander, the 4th Somersets ‘Never had a failure and never lost an inch of ground… they knew they were better men than the Germans and never ceased to show it’. Unusually for an official history of this kind, the book has no single author, but includes contributions from all ranks to build a picture of such hard-fought actions as Hill 112 and Mount PIncon in the Normandy campaign; the heavily contested crossing of the RIver Seine, the ‘taking out’ of the ancient German town of Cleve, and finally the taking of the north German port city of Bremen. This is the story of the final months of the Second World War in Europe seen through the eyes of the men who won it.
