Infantry Die Hards: The Anatomy Of A Regiment
Patrick Crowley

"The least spectacular arm of the Army, yet without them you cannot win a battle. Without them you can do nothing at all. Nothing!"
Field Marshal Montgomery on the Infantry.

This new book is all about the infantry, concentrating on England’s senior infantry regiment of the Line, The Princess of Wales’s Royal Regiment, ‘The Tigers’. The Regiment has a unique heritage dating back nearly 450 years. The book highlights the role and peculiarities of the infantry and picks out 14 key stories from Tangier in 1662 to modern Iraq. It highlights the sacrifices made for King, Queen and country, from jungle to desert, across the world, by the regiments of the South-East of England.

Written by Colonel (Retired) Patrick Crowley DL, Deputy Colonel of the Regiment, Foreword by Colour Sergeant Johnson Beharry VC and Afterword by the Colonel of The Regiment, Lieutenant General Doug Chalmers DSO OBE, this new and exciting book is published and sponsored by Pooley Sword. All profit made is dedicated to Regimental Benevolence.
