    Have a look at Project Gutenberg. There are several regimental books on WW1 listed which can be read online or downloaded

    Project Gutenberg is here:

    I haven't had a very thorough look, but I've already found the following

    17th Highland Light Infantry Record of Service 1914-1918 (

    The Story of the 6th Battalion, The Durham Light Infantry 1915-1918 (

    The Doings of the Fifteenth Infantry Brigade 1914-1915 ( [Yes, that is what the book is called!!)

    The Story of the 2/4th Oxfordshire and Buckinghamshire Light Infantry (

    The War Service of the 1/4 Royal Berkshire Regiment (

    The Fifth Leicestershire. A Record Of The 1/5th Battalion The Leicestershire Regiment, 1914-1919 (

    The 23rd (Service) Battalion Royal Fusiliers (First Sportsman's) (

    The Fifth Battalion Highland Light Infantry in the War 1914-1918 (

    The Sherwood Foresters in the Great War 1914 - 1919 (

    The Fife and Forfar Yeomanry 1914-1919 (

    The Seventh Manchesters July 1916 to March 1919 (

    There are probably several more as well hidden among its gems

    Yep, great site for old books, and a worthy (or should that be 'wordy') project.

    There are also a few books of letters from officers and soldiers, as well as more general WW1 books.

    I'll try to combile a fuller list as I find them
