Synopses & Reviews
Rather than being a conventional regimental history, Fighting Tigers instead picks out fourteen classic actions and campaigns fought by men of the Leicestershire (later Royal Leicestershire) Regiment.
The book covers the Boer War, First World War, Second World War, Korean War and the 'undeclared' war in Borneo in 1963. The actions covered include Ladysmith and the Somme via the evacuation at Dunkirk to the jungles of Burma, and thence to the hills of Korea.
The Leicestershire regiment at war, a regimental history with a difference.
