about

Tigers at War is the remarkable story of the infantrymen of the Princess of Wales's Royal Regiment, the Tigers by nickname, who, since the end of the Cold War and fall of the Iron Curtain, have served on the front line in Northern Ireland, the Balkans, Iraq, and Afghanistan, as well as the many small wars and brush fires across Africa, Asia, and Europe. The Regiment's unstinting and courageous service around the globe reflects Britain's political and military engagement on the world stage over the last quarter-century, and the Tigers emerged from the Second Gulf War (2003-09) with the distinction of having won more gallantry decorations for valor than any other regiment in the British Army. Tigers at War provides an impressive and compelling life and times portrait of the modern Regiment in war and conflict. This superbly researched book, written by a serving officer, and incorporating the vivid reminiscences of the soldiers in the thick of action, is a tribute not only to an exceptional fighting regiment but also to the extraordinary acts of courage of its individual infantrymen. A compelling and absorbing narrative, the book serves to mark the 25th Anniversary of the formation of the latest incarnation of this remarkable, and quintessentially English infantry regiment, which reaches back over 445 years of unbroken regimental soldiering in the service of the crown, and spanning the reigns of Queen Elizabeth I to Queen Elizabeth II.
