This superbly illustrated book produced with the full support of the Royal British Legion and tells the complete story of its history through exclusive access to its archives, thus providing a celebratory, as well informative, tribute to their work over the past 90 years. It is a definitive history of this much-loved organization, charting its work with soldiers and ex-servicemen through the stories of its heroes, famous as well as unknown, during the highest-profile military campaigns of the past 90 years. The book is divided into nine chapters, each representing one decade in the RBL's existence. Each chapter celebrates one hero per year; 1921, 1922, 1923, etc. giving an account of that particular person, and what they achieved. A fine read highlighting the reality of the Legion's work and the men and women it works with.
