The Early War British Army
Dr. Gavin Hughes

A brief introduction to the background of the early infantry of the
British Expeditionary Force, with a few suggestions and ideas for
recreating units and some of its smaller actions.

The Scottish Regiments in the Great War 1914- 1918
Dr. Gavin Hughes

The Scottish infantry during the Great War were arguably the most distinctive
of the British Expeditionary Force. Their contribution left a lasting impact
on the history of the War and gave us some of its most enduring images.

British Cavalry Units 1914 - 1918
Dr. Gavin Hughes

To many, the cavalry were a glittering showpiece of Empire. Yet, behind
the spit and polish, these men were also professional fighters who, when
war came, were swiftly transformed into modern mounted soldiers.

The Early War French Army
Dr. Gavin Hughes

A brief glimpse into the world of the 'poilu' (literally 'hairy one'!)
from 1914 - 1915, as they attempted to hurl the insolent 'Allemandes'
back across their borders once and for all.

The French Marine Brigade in Belgium 1914 - 1918
Dr. Gavin Hughes

In 1914, the Fuslilers Marins were wading through the water-filled
trenches of Flanders, fighting the enemies of France once more. This article
hopes to give a brief guide on the organisation, uniform, tactics of the
French Marines, with a view to offering a few scenario ideas on their
defence of Dixmude.

The Early War French Cavalry Units 1914 - 1915
Dr. Gavin Hughes

In 1914, France's splendidly dressed cavalry regiments were amongst the
most colourful of any European power. Adding French cavalry to your Great
War army will add colour and spirit to any of your games.

The Early Imperial German Army
Dr. Gavin Hughes

A brief guide and background to the regiments of 'field-greys', which will
hopefully give you a few ideas of how to use them on your wargames table.

German Jager Battalions in the Great War 1914- 1918
Dr. Gavin Hughes

The Jagers of the Imperial German Army are sometimes an overlooked troop
type, yet these fast moving, sharpshooting, troops fought tenaciously
on every front, from the mountainous passes of Macedonia to the bloody
quagmire of Verdun. By the very nature of their duties and organisation,
they were ideal light infantry.

German Cavalry Units 1914 - 1918
Dr. Gavin Hughes

In the early period of the Western Front, the role of German cavalry
was, arguably, at its highest profile. In the swift war of movement
dictated by the Schlieffen Plan, the German cavalry became the literal
spearhead of the thrust into Belgium. In the dying summer days of 1914,
the cavalry regiments symbolised all that Imperial Germany held dear.
