Lord Anglesey, like so many people, thought that the part played by the British cavalry on the Western Front in the last four years of the First World War was so negligible as not to be worth writing about. On looking into the matter, he very soon realized how utterly wrong he was. This last volume of his monumental chronicle of the mounted arm's final century is intended to put the record straight once and for all. Drawing on material from a large number of sources, many hitherto unpublished, he demonstrates how even many of the most respectable historians have grotesquely misunderstood the cavalry's roles during the grisly period of trench warfare. He shows how, at the worst crisis moments, the cavalry's superior mobility saved the day time and again. Further, the evidence of the marvellous way in which mounted troops performed highly dangerous tasks, for which no other troops were available, during the periods between the great battles, is fully presented here. The book ends with an extensive epilogue, showing how, between 1919 and 1939, the mounted arm said goodbye to its horses and, in spite of a minority of romantic diehards, took to mechanization with a surprising degree of enthusiasm.
