5.0 out of 5 stars Not the best of its genre 15 July 2010
There are not a great number of specialist publications on British Army regimental lineage and then, like London buses, three come along in a comparatively short period. This particular title, although an interesting look at the subject is easily beaten into third place by the recently-published 'Bloodline' (Iain Gordon) and, in first place, the excellent publication by Goff Lumley, 'Ancestry and Amalgamations in the British Army 1660-2008' which uses cap badge illustrations and family-tree charts to easy-to-follow great effect. Lumley has also produced, in the same format, 'Regiments and Mergers in the British Army 1907-2007'. Lumley's two publications complement and bring up to date the superb multi-volume series on British Army lineage by Anthony Baker. If you have an interest in this esoteric field of military history, you should not be without the publications herein referred to.

4.0 out of 5 stars Comprehensive guide 22 Sep 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Very interesting and comprehensive guide to the British army structure outline through the last 2 centuries. Lacks a more detailed Battle Honours list, and the development of some units (MG Corps, Reconnassaince, SAS, Parachute Regiment...)
