This is the story of six battalions of a single regiment.
     The First or Grenadier Regiment of Foot Guards, to give it its full title, is the senior infantry regiment in the British Army. Its battalions were apt to find themselves incorporated in the best brigades and the best divisions, and to be selected for some of the most critical fighting of the war. Some fought in tanks, the remainder in their traditional role of infantry.
