A social and Military History of the 1/8th Battalion, the Royal Warwickshire Regiment, in the Great War

By Robert David Williams


[from the Introduction] This work examines the social and military development of the 1/8th Battalion, The Royal Warwickshire Regiment, in the Great War. It covers the period from the unit’s formation, in 1908, to the end of the war and will embrace both a sociological analysis of the unit’s members and an operational analysis of its tactical evolution. Extensive use has been made of both archival and published sources. The former include letters and diaries held in public collections, as well as the war diaries, medal rolls and service papers held at the Public Record Office (PRO), Kew. Local newspapers have also been widely consulted
