Gallantry Awards to the Gloucestershire Regiment 1914 - 1918 by Peter R. Littlewood M.B.E.
Hardback, 244 pages, black and white photographs
This book provides an invaluable history of the sixteen battalions raised by the Gloucestershire Regiment during the Great War, using unit war diaries to chart their moves about the war's various theatres. And it examines the gallantry awards won by their officers and men, quoting form citations which do not simply illustrate individual acts of bravery, but tell us so much about the war as a whole. The difference “big men” (whatever their stature in feet and inches) made to battle.
