The Territorials 1908-1914 is a unique, comprehensive record of the part-time soldiers who made up the Territorial Force that supported the regular army in the years immediately before the outbreak of the First World War. Previously information on the history and organization of these dedicated amateur soldiers has been incomplete and scattered across many sources but now, in this invaluable work of reference, Ray Westlake provides an accessible introduction to the Territorial Force and a directory of the units raised in each county and each town.The origin, aims and organization of the Territorial Force are described as well as the terms of service, recruitment, equipment and training. But the bulk of the book consists of details of over 600 Territorial units plus a comprehensive account of every city, town or village associated with them. Essential information on the all the infantry formations is supplied, but also covered are the yeomanry, the artillery, the engineers, the Royal Army Medical Corps and the Army Service Corps. Ray Westlake's historical guide of the Territorial Force - the forerunner of the present-day Territorial Army - will be of enduring value to military and family historians.

MEDIA REVIEWS
The book is split into three sections. The first provides background information on the Territorial Force, includingunit types, rates of pay, recruitment and general definitions. All three sections are organised alphabetically, an idea that fits better in the second and third sections than in the first. The second sections looks at the over 600 units within the Territorial Force. This is a pure reference book, which will be of great value to anyone with an interest in thr territorial Force and for family histories attempting to trace people who served in the Territorials. - History of War
