This is no dry-as-dust work of reference, but a detailed and magnificently illustrated two-volume record of the complete insignia of every regiment and corps in the British Army up to 1900. Illustrated by striking colour plates of the colours and uniforms, and by fine black and white drawings of their crests and badges, the text contains brief histories of each unit described, as well as lists of their commanding officers, battle honours etc. The books are complete and authoritative without being unmanageably large, and are an essential and extremely attractive additon to the library of any serious student of the British Army in its late Victorian heyday.
