The unique history of 'The Micks' - the Irish Guards - is chronicled in this photographic record that starts at their formation in 1900 and takes the reader through to the recent war in Afghanistan. It is the story of a remarkable family regiment that continues to enhance the values, standards and reputation of the British infantry in an ever-changing world. Their role in two world wars, and more recently in the Balkans, the Gulf War and the War on Terror, is covered in graphic detail with dramatic pictures. The book shows the development of regimental soldiering from the rigidity of the Victorian era, through the horrors of the trenches to armoured warfare in Europe and light infantry soldiering worldwide - all the time upholding the finest traditions of the Foot Guards demonstrating excellence in operational and ceremonial duties. It also features, in an extensive set of appendices, a remarkable record of facts about the regiment - the people, places and events in the history of the Irish Guards - which will serve as an invaluable source of information for future generations. .
