Examines the early years of Britains Ltd. production from 1893 to 1924.
This intensively researched work answers questions about the early mechanical toys, "ancient" W.Britain figures, sources of their designs, the accuracy of their models, the small-size B Series, the little-known Paris Office, and Fred Whisstock's wonderful box labels. Soldiers of Greater Britain, along with my earlier Armies of the World (1925-1941) and Regiments of All Nations (1946-1966) provides a thorough and authoritative record of W.Britain traditional lead lines.
