Comprehensive regimental history that includes all twenty-one battalions that existed during the war. In August 1914 the SWB consisted of two regular battalions, the 1st in Bordon with 3rd Brigade 1st Division, the 2nd in Tientsin; the 3rd Special Reserve Battalion in Brecon; and one Territorial battalion, the Brecknockshire Battalion, also in Brecon. By the end of the war a further 17 battalions had been raised eight of which went on active service and all of them feature in this excellent history, even if only briefly in the case of those that did not leave the UK. Total dead numbered some 5,500, 64 Battle Honours were awarded and six VCs were won. There is a list of Honours and Awards, including Mention in Despatches and foreign awards, and also the Roll of Honour in which officers are listed alphabetically, other ranks alphabetically by battalions; place and date of death are not given.

The book more than filled some gaps in our family history. The book is written in a very concise and easily read manner not over whelming you with details but giving you enough details to more than understand the conditions the members of the South Wales Borderers served under.
Our grandfather joined the South Wales Borders August 1914 and served in the 5th Battalion until the end of hostilities. He passed away before any of his grandchildren had the opportunity to speak to him about his service and experiences during World War One so the book as previously said the book filled a lot of gaps for us.
I highly recommend the History of the South Wales Borderers 1914-1918 to anyone interested in military history, the late Captain CT Atkinson has done an excellent job compiling the history of the regiment.

This is exactly what I've been looking for. My grandfather enlisted with The South Wales Borderers at the start of WW1. Unfortunately he was KIA on 31st October 1918. My mother was only 2 when he was killed and the information she has was very sporadic. This book supplied a lot of answers to her questions.
Its well thought out and easy to locate individual pieces of information.
