Format: Hardcover
Naval and Military Press, have once again provided the military historian and researcher with an invaluable service by re-publishing this long out of print volume at the most reasonable price of twenty two pounds. In common with similar works, original copies of this title would normally be difficult to find and if available, would probably cost around four or five times as much!

Although the regiment mustered an amazing thirty eight battalions during the Great War, this particular volume which contains no less than 358 pages, chronicles the war record of the fifteen battalions of the regiment which served on the Western Front, in Italy, Gallipoli, Mesopotamia, Palestine and Macedonia.

At the beginning of the war, the 1st Battalion, whilst serving on the outskirts of Mons, was subjected to the brunt of an attack by two German Army Corps, however they held their positions and as a result, their heroic stand is said to have actually saved the British Expeditionary Force from disaster. That battalion fought throughout the war too and during that period, was awarded no less than thirty five of the regiment's seventy five battle honours! Two members of the regiment were awarded the Victoria Cross, however over 8,400 lost their lives!

This is a very readable volume, however as far as regimental histories go, this particular history is unusual, as each theatre of war is covered separately and not necessarily in chronological order! The large appendices will however be invaluable for researchers, as having commenced with a summary showing the totals of dead officers and other rank totals by battalions, it is followed by the nominal rolls, with officers grouped alphabetically and other ranks in their battalions.

Some regiments are more fortunate than others in having a well-written and detailed history of their role in the First World War. This, of the Cheshire Regiment, is one of the best. It is carefully taken from the battalion War Diaries, and includes a list of deaths, and winners of gallantry medals.

This paperback reprint is a nice book and is well-bound: among the very best WW1 regimantal histories in print.
