Over the next 22 years of infantry soldiering, many of them spent with the Gloucester Regiment, he held every rank and many regimental appointments up to WO1 and Regimental Sergeant Major. he retired in 1974, as RSM of the 1st Battalion The Wessex Regiment (Rifle Volunteers), after seeing service in Malaya, Cyprus, Swaziland, Libya, Germany, Ulster and home garrisons. He began painting military subjects in 1968 and since then has gained worldwide popularity as a military illustrator. Mike has written and illustrated many quality books for Osprey.

First Sentence
WHEN THE NATIONS OF EUROPE went to war in 1914, most mobilised huge armies of conscripts numbered in their millions, produced by long established systems that took the whole able-bodied youth of the nation for brief compulsory military service followed by years in the reserves. Read the first page

HASH(0xa123e798) out of 5 stars VOLUME ONE DOESN'T DISAPPOINT. July 10 2014
By Mark Waywood - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
THE FIRST VOLUME IN MIKE CHAPPELS' THREE BOOKLET EXAMINATION OF THE "BRITISH ARMY IN WORLD WAR 1," DOES NOT DISAPPOINT. THE AUTHOR MAKES A CLEAR DISTINCTION BETWEEN REGULAR ARMY/IMPERIAL UNITS, THE TERRITORIAL UNITS, KITCHENER'S "NEW ARMY" RECRUITS, AND DRAFTEES IN THE BRITISH MILITARY. THE USUAL FINE JOB ON UNIFORMS AND INSIGNIA IS WELL COVERED AS WELL AS THE BASIC WEAPONRY AND TACTICAL USE OR MORTARS, LARGE BORE ARTILLERY AND EVEN THE LEWIS MACHINE GUN.

TAKEN AS A SET CHAPPELLS' THREE BOOKLETS REPRESENT A GREAT INTRODUCTARY PRIMER TO THE BRITISH ARMY IN THE "GREAT WAR."

I Love Osprey. And This Subject Matter Is Very Dear To Me As Both My Grandfathers Were Young
British Officers In WWI.The Books are Well Written and The Colour Plates are All Works Of Art Themselfs as A Figure Modeler I use the Books For The Correct Paints.Other Books If They Happen To Mention The Weapons Its Just a Gloss Over While This Series Gives Information For In This Case E-W Enfield To Webley The Writing is too The Point the only down side to me Is its all to short. I wish Osprey would Rerealse all Three In a Single Volume. with more artwork. and also sell the Plates as Prints. Here On Amazon.
HASH(0xa123ec18) out of 5 stars Chappell's drawings are superb but Feb. 10 2009
By danny boy - Published on Amazon.com
I have this book and much about anything else that I can get which has Mike Chappell's drawings. I do notice a certain trend in his later works to create paintings with a rather washed out look. I don't know if it is due to the printing process but the colours look faded. If so, his earlier works are more appealing.

I now have all three and they will be used for painting. I like the books the only draw back is the color in the prints a bet washed out ,but if you know what you are looking at its great

Very nice artwork, as is standard in these Osprey books. My only disappointment was that I felt that the BEF of August 1914 could have used a bit more coverage in the colour plates.
