The Royal Green Jackets are widely acknowledged as innovators who developed much of the thinking of the British infantry in the fields of tactics and training, mobility and marksmanship, equipment, management and individual initiative from the 18th century onwards. They were the first to wear green uniforms as camouflage rather than red and to fire the more accurate rifle instead of muskets. This book examines the history of the component regiments of the Royal Green Jackets and describes the action of individual regiments in the Napoleonic Wars, Boer Wars, and World Wars. Numerous illustrations and photographs depict the Green Jackets' uniforms in vivid detail.

Early History of Component Regiments . The Napoleonic Wars, 1804-1815 . 19th Century Campaigns . The Boer War . The Great War . Between the Wars . The Second World War . The Plates
