Up next from Fonthill Media is a book that tackles on the British Army of the Rhine, following the end of The Great War.
British Army of the Rhine, After the First World War by Michael Foley.

From the publisher:

The experiences of troops of the British Army of the Rhine in post-First World War Germany

Contains previously unseen and unpublished photographs of the BAOR (British Army of the Rhine)
Personal experiences of the men who were the BAOR
How the British occupation forces became the most popular of the Allies based in Germany
How the situation in post-First World War Germany led to the outbreak of the Second World War

With the end of the First World War, British troops crossed the Rhine and entered a country torn by violence where revolution seemed likely. Also, there was a threat of the war resuming if Germany refused to accept Allied terms. British forces were plunged into the turmoil of a defeated country and had to face not only political unrest, but the German public who they expected to be in a hostile mood as they faced the victorious Allied forces taking over their country. British troops not only faced this difficult situation, but were disillusioned with their continued service. The majority had expected to be demobbed as soon as the war was won. This was the situation they found themselves in: looking forwards to going home and instead forced into a hostile country where war may breakout again at any time. The British Army of the Rhine: After the First World War looks at how British troops became the most popular members of the occupation force as Britain and the world faced the growth of German unrest that led to the Second World War.


The book, published by 27 October 2017, will be a hardcover edition containing 208 pages and 48 illustrations.

Here's an interesting examination of a very vague and little-covered topic in history. I'll be looking for a copy soon.
