A History of the Irish Guards in the Afghan and Iraq Campaigns 2001-2014 (Hardback)

£25.00
Pre-order for despatch on publication.

Synopsis

Irish Guardsmen have been involved in all aspects of the campaigns in Afghanistan and Iraq - from in Kabul in 2001, through the invasion of Iraq in 2003 to the eventual withdrawal in 2009, and the campaign in Helmand from 2006 to 2014.



This participation has been at every level from individual to battalion and widely dispersed - a complete picture of the British Army's experience in the post 9/11 years. This study, based on official records and numerous interviews with those who took part - from the brigade commanders down to the guardsmen on the ground - is a unique picture of one battalion's experiences through some of the most testing times the British Army has faced.
