Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. During the First World War 259 infantry brigades were raised by the British Army, two by the Royal Navy, and one from the Royal Marines. Of these brigades fifty-three were held in reserve or only used for training, while another nine only served in British India. The pre war regular army only had eighteen infantry brigades, with another forty-three serving with the reserve Territorial Force (TF). Once war was declared, the regular army was expanded first by volunteers and then conscripts for what became known as Kitchener's Army. At the same time volunteers for the TF formed second line formations.show more
