Product Description

Review

..".beautifully illustrated and the eight color plates show off a variety of WWI uniforms/equipment that are appropriate for armies that fought in the RCW...fills a very necessary spot in my wargaming library... As always, Osprey books form the first line of any 'attack' on a new period of study!" -"HMG Reviewing Stand"

About the Author

Mike Chappell comes from an Aldershot family with British Army connections stretching back several generations. He enlisted as a teenage private in the Royal Hampshire Regiment in 1952. Over the next 22 years of infantry soldiering, many of them spent with the Gloucester Regiment, he held every rank and many regimental appointments up to WO1 and Regimental Sergeant Major. He retired in 1974, as RSM of the 1st Battalion The Wessex Regiment (Rifle Volunteers), after seeing service in Malaya, Cyprus, Swaziland, Libya, Germany, Ulster and home garrisons. He began painting military subjects in 1968 and since then has gained worldwide popularity as a military illustrator. Mike has also written and illustrated many quality books for Osprey.

First Sentence
ALTHOUGH THE GREATEST commitment of land forces by Great Britain and her Empire was that made to the Western Front, there were other theatres of operations where the British Army fought from 1914 to 1918, and in some cases continued to fight after the Armistice had ended hostilities in France and Belgium. Read the first page

This is a very compact overview of the other theatres of war than the Western Front fought over by the 'British Army' - really in some places a conglomeration of soldiers from all of the Empire. As such it is first class, a definite must for someone requiring an overview and another excellent book from Mike Chappell; who created both text and pictures. Not 5 stars because it is rather 'thin'.

GREAT LITTLE NARRATIVE 19 Jun 2014
By Mark Waywood - Published on Amazon.com
THE THIRD ENTRY FOR THE "BRITISH ARMY IN WORLD WAR I" IS A GREAT LITTLE NARRATIVE COVERING BRITISH ACTIONS IN A NUMBER OF LITTLE COVERED THEATERS. THE AUTHOR DOES A WONDERFUL JOB DETAILING BRITISH ACTIONS IN THE BALKANS, MESOPOTAMIA, ITALY, RUSSIA, AND EVEN TOUCHES ON THE IRISH REBELLION, REBELLIONS ON THE NORTHWEST FRONTIER OF INDIA, AND A NUMBER OF POST-WAR HOSTILITIES. THE SECTION ON ARMS, UNIFORMS AND EQUIPMENT IS BRIEF. THERE IS ONE LARGE MASSIVE TABLE OF BRITISH UNITS SERVING IN THE SOUTHERN AND EASTERN AREAS AND WHEN. ALL IN ALL A LITTLE GEM.

Love This Book 10 Jan 2012

I Love Osprey. And This Subject Matter Is Very Dear To Me As Both My Grandfathers Were Young
British Officers In WWI.The Books are Well Written and The Colour Plates are All Works Of Art Themselfs as A Figure Modeler I use the Books For The Correct Paints.Other Books If They Happen To Mention The Weapons Its Just a Gloss Over While This Series Gives Information For In This Case E-W Enfield To Webley The Writing is too The Point the only down side to me Is its all to short. I wish Osprey would Rerealse all Three In a Single Volume. with more artwork. and also sell the Plates as Prints. Here On Amazon. And This Book Means a Lot To Me as My Dad's Father was A Cavalry Officer Who Rode Into Jerusalem Dec 9, 1917 With The British Army.

I bought this to research Unifroms... 13 Jun 2013
By Shaya - Published on Amazon.com

I guess it's worth more than 2 stars but I thought that based on the description, this was a detailed reference on British WW I uniforms. Althought it does have some information, it is by no means complete and certainly not limited to a study of period uniforms. I kept it because there was some information that was useful to me. I don't really get the point of this little book. It's not a complete history (it doesn't try to be ) and it's not a complete description of all period uniforms. I wonder who the target audience is supposed to be ?
