This book is written for the modern family historian who wishes to research the activities of their ancestors and kinsmen who served in the British Army since 1660. It is a practical guide intended to help them find their way into and through the many records now available in archives and on the internet.
There is a wealth of such records for the millions of British soldiers who have served their country – many will find surprising and plentiful details of their ancestors while others may struggle to find a one-line mention. In either case, the individual will follow a fascinating thread through British history.
