This is the recent history of one of the most famous regiments of the line in the British Army - the Royal Leicestershires. Marching with The Tigers covers events in that Regiment and its successor, the 4th Battalion The Royal Anglian Regiment, in the two decades 1955-75. During this period the Battalions was deployed in Cyprus, Germany, Hong Kong, Borneo, Aden, Malta and Libya, Bahrain and Northern Ireland. Supported by seventeen maps and many black and white photographs, the lively text describes the Regular battalions' activities up to the disbandment of Tiger Company in 1975, the Territorial Army battalions' up to the disbandment of The Royal Leicestershire Regiment (Territorial) in 1971, and the early years of the Leicestershire Companies in the 5th and 7th (Volunteer) Battalions.

The final chapter brings The Tigers' History right up to the present day including Royal Tigers' Wood and the dedication of the various national memorials commemorating the Regiment. Its numerous appendices contain a wealth of information such as lists of Honours and Gallantry Awards (including Long Service and Efficiency Decorations and Medals), Colonels and Commanding Officers and of those who commanded other units and formations, Late Entry Commissions and National Service Officers.
