In the past decade and a half the unique requirements of dual wars in Iraq and Afghanistan have radically altered the appearance and capabilities of the British Army's infantry soldiers. Gone are the tactics uniforms and equipment of the Cold War, replaced by an elite fighting force, skilled in counterinsurgency operations and warfare in both urban and rural environments. Fully illustrated and written by an insider, this engaging book traces the major transformations in British Army doctrine, organisation, structures, units, uniforms and equipment, from the end of the Cold War in the 1990s up to today, revealing how despite being a small force in global terms, the British Army continues to be able to punch above its weight.

MEDIA REVIEWS

"A Highly Recommended primer on the subject." --Armor Modeling and Preservation Society

"This book is a superb snapshot of a fighting force skilled in counterinsurgency, airmobile and armored warfare operations in a myriad of rural and urban environments. The British Army Since 2000 should rank as a vital resource for toy soldier and model figure makers and hobbyists now and in the future." --Toy Soldier & Model Figure

"A brief, yet very complete, book on the 21st Century evolution and current status of the organization of the British Army. The author deals with the changing demands on the British Army and it's evolving structure to meet those demands as well as the changes in the traditional British regimental system. This is not a narrative account, but rather it factually traces the changes brought about by the various Ministries of Defense since 2000. If you are looking for a concise yet thorough reference on this subject, this book fills the bill." --IPMS/USA
