LESSONS FROM THE MUD: 55TH (WEST LANCASHIRE) DIVISION AT THE THIRD BATTLE OF YPRES
464pp., 25 maps, 12 photos., P.B. 2019. The division attacked twice during the Third Battle of Ypres. After each attack, General Jeudwine collected `Narratives’ from his men. These range from formal reports from Commanding Officers to Private soldier’s handwritten memoires on a sheet of paper torn from a notepad. Transcribed in their entirety for the first time, these Narratives offer a fascinating, first-hand account of two major written within days of the battle.
