Richard Doherty Examines The British Reconnaissance Corps, whose contribution to victory was largely forgotten after disbandment at the close of World War II.

This book narrates the combat service, and explains the organisation, of the 'Recce' Corps, whose units provided the mobile spearhead of the British infantry divisions from the Far East to Europe. Trained to probe ahead and locate the enemy, and to screen the flanks and rearguard when under attack, the Recce troopers fought both from their light armoured vehicles and on foot.
