Date of publication: September 2011
Publisher: Harper Collins
The Royal British Legion was founded in 1921. It is now the country's leading charity providing financial, social and emotional support to those who have served or who are currently serving in the British Armed Forces and their dependants. The RBL is behind the annual Poppy Appeal, the highest profile charity appeal in Britain.
This superbly illustrated book has 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 the definitive history of this much-loved organisation, 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.
