VERNER`S HISTORY and CAMPAIGNS of THE RIFLE BRIGADE. 1800-1813. Complete 2 Volume Set


Colonel William Willoughby Cole Verner was born in 1852 and commissioned into The Rifle Brigade in 1874, retiring in 1904. He served on the staff in the Egyptian campaign of 1884-85 and during the Boer War. He died in 1922. This is a masterly volume, beautifully written and produced with a wealth of detail and excellent illustrations. This has to be the finest regimental history produced for Peninsular War. What a shame the author died before further volumes could be produced.
