Description
First raised in 18th-century Britain, the mounted infantry known as the Light Dragoons acquired a reputation for courage and dash in the charge. The four regiments that were eventually created served with Wellington at Waterloo, and the 13th Light Dragoons were at the forefront of the Charge of the Light Brigade, while in World War II the 13th and 18th Hussars converted to armor and were the first Allied tanks to land on French soil in 1944. Today "England's Northern Cavalry" can be found serving on the front lines of Iraq or Afghanistan as easily as performing ceremonial duties in the United Kingdom. This abundantly illustrated book by a former dragoon reveals the history of this proud regiment, its numerous battle honors and medal recipients, and what it was like to live and fight as a cavalry trooper then and now.
