In Peace and War: The Story of The Queen's Royal Hussars (The Queen's Own and Royal Irish) (Hardback)

Usually despatched within 2 weeks.


The Queen's Royal Hussars (The Queen's Own and Royal Irish) (QRH) traces its origins back to 1685 when King James II formed a standing army. The Regiment was created in 1993 with the amalgamation of the Queen's Own Hussars and the Queen's Royal Irish Hussars.

The Author tells the history of these celebrated regiments who fought alongside each other at Dettingen, Balaklava, the Peninsula, in India and during the two World Wars.

Recently the QRH have seen action in Bosnia-Herzegovina, Kosovo, Iraq and Afghanistan where the Regiment provided the first cavalry-led ground-holding battlegroup. Currently stationed in Athlone Barracks, Sennelager, the QRH is the only cavalry regiment equipped with the Challenger tank, which they expect to retain on return to the UK in 2019.

In Peace and War is a superbly researched record of over 300 years' distinguished service to the Crown. While the demands facing officers and men today may have changed over the years, what remains constant are the dedication, bravery, commitment and sense of humour of those who serve.
