From the Publisher

In his Army Reforms of 1906/07 the Secretary of State for War, Richard Burdon Haldane, provided for an expeditionary force - the Regular Army supplemented by the old Militia - and a new organisation intended for home defence, the Territorial Force. This new 'Citizen's Army' was formed by the transfer of the Honourable Artillery Company, Imperial Yeomanry and Volunteer Force, all with many years of service and tradition. At the outbreak of war, the Territorial Force was organised as per the Regular Army, with infantry battalions, artillery, engineers, supply and medical formations.

This book takes a highly detailed and illustrated look at the badges and uniforms and the changing organisation of the British Territorial units during the Great War. It also covers the combat experiences of the men who soon found themselves in service overseas, in the thick of the fighting.

Now, in an odd role reversal, President Trump is vowing to put America first, while China’s Xi Jinping has said he wants to pick up the torch to lead globalization. How will that play out? That was Fortune’s question to one of the pioneers of globalization, FedEx founder and CEO Fred Smith. He was a spotlight guest at a dinner in New York on March 13 in the run-up to the Fortune Global Forum, which will assemble the world’s t

The Spy Who Stayed In From The Cold

Bryan Schatz It was late 2014. Pro-Moscow separatists in eastern Ukraine had been attacking government forces, and the Russian military was massing along the border. And though the Kremlin was insisting that it wasn’t operating inside Ukraine, Eliot Higgins was uncovering strong evidence to the contrary—from the comfort of his desk. As Higgins, an independent intelligence analyst in Leicester, England, noticed that Russian soldiers were posting selfies and candids to social-media sites like VKontakte, Russia’s version of Facebook, he came to realize the images could blow apart the official st

A Dark Time in Denmark's History

Had the Allies landed on the Western coast of Denmark on D-Day, the Nazis would have been ready. The German forces had built up the defensive Atlantic Wall, which stretched along the European coast from the top of Norway to south of France, to protect against an invasion launched from Britain. With Denmark offering a short route to Berlin, an invasion there seemed likely, and the Axis power prepared by planting between one and two million landmines along the Nazi-occupied nation’s shores. Invaded by German forces in April 1940, Denmark was spared harsh treatment during most of its occupation.
