The Irish Guards In The Great War – Vol. I. [Illustrated Edition]

Length: 269 pages7 hours


A Fantastic Regimental History of an Illustrious regiment, awarded two coveted stars by the renowned military historian and Times War Correspondent Cyril Falls:
“One could be assured that when Mr Kipling turned his hand to a regimental history the result would be very different to the ordinary. The particular invention wherewith he has enriched this book is a sort of chorus—the comment of the private soldier upon the events narrated, which is witty and effective. Mr Kipling has also brought to bear his magic upon that most matter-of-fact of records, the battalion war diary, and has made it live. *** he has composed a noble tribute to the great regiment in the ranks of which he lost his son.”— Cyril Falls, War Books, London 1930.
Illustrated with sumptuously detailed maps.
