Summary

On June 18, 1815, the Royal Scots Greys charged Napoleon's infantry columns as they reached the British line, capturing the eagle of the French 45th Infantry. Napoleon is said to have commented of the regiment, 'Ah, ces terribles chevaux gris (those terrible grey horses)'. Today the captured eagle is the regimental badge of the Royal Scots Dragoon Guards, formed from an amalgamation of 3rd Dragoon Guards, 6th Dragoon Guards and the Scots Greys - Scotland's senior regiment and her only regular cavalry.

The Royal Scots Dragoons and their antecedents have been involved in every major British campaign since they were raised in the 17th century. Here Stephen Wood tells the fascinating story of glorious cavalry charges and terrifying tank battles, from the Western Front to the liberation of Basra. Stunning paintings bring the narrative to life while contemporary photography depicts both the horror and the compassion of modern warfare as witnessed by the officers and troopers of this unique regiment.
