Full description

In August 1914 the 1st Battalion Bedfordshire Regiment were amongst the small professional British Army who gathered and prepared for a war that would ‘be over by Christmas’. With a long and proud history, dating back to 1688, the regiment′s fighting men had already served through numerous wars and rebellions.

This is the first part of their story, from their first defiant defense amongst the slag heaps at Mons, through to the ferocious fighting during the Battle of the Somme in 1916. By integrating a wide variety of official and personal sources, supported by maps, and personalised with individual stories and photographs, Steven Fuller brings the fascinating and extraordinary history of this distinguished battalion and it′s ‘Soldier Lads’ to life.
