Men from across Hampshire have for generations fought in the ranks of the Royal Hampshire Regiment, or its predecessors the North Hampshire Regiment and South Hampshire Regiment. This book sets out to trace the most dramatic battles fought by the Hampshire men.

The regiment dates back to 1702 when Thomas Meredith was asked by Queen Anne to raise a regiment of infantry. Within months Meredith's Regiment was marching off to war against the French in Europe. The Hampshires have been a leading fighting regiment from that day on.

Among the great battles featured among the Battle Honours are: Blenheim, Minden, Afghanistan, The Somme, Passchendaele, Ypres, Dunkirk, Cassino, Normandy Landings, Caen and Rhine Crossing. Each major battle will get a chapter to itself, more minor clashes will be dealt with within general campaign chapters.

Profusely illustrated with photos and artworks this book provides a thrilling account of the history of the county regiment in stirring language that will make it an essential addition to the bookshelf of anyone interested in the county and its history. This is a gripping account of the battles that gave the Royal Hampshire Regiment its proud battle honours.
