Let me be very clear. This book is without doubt the most definitive source of the Leeds Pals in the Great War. With the advent of the centenary next year of the start of that conflict the publishers should get ahead of the game and start publishing it again,.
Not just for the occasional "dip in" but for historians and students alike. I, like a lot of other people in the North of England, had relatives in these "pals" regiments.
It is just what I have been looking for and will be a work of reference for me.

Excellent work with many stories of the brave men who joined up together. This is one of the better pals books and really goes to town (or should I saw City) on the individuals story. I research medals and found it invaluable. Plenty of photographs from the City.

Poignant memories of the regiment from my home town. Describes the horrors of the Somme in graphic detail and has many letters sent home by those killed. A difficult read but a necessary one as theses sacrifices should never be forgotten

This publication is an excellent piece of work. The strength of the book originates from the availability of first hand accounts from surviving members of the "Leeds Pals". The author provides good and relevant back ground history associated to the City of Leeds and manages to entwine the individual and group experiences of the members of the battalion. I would strongly recommend this book to anyone who holds an interest both in the Great War and in the history of the City of Leeds.

This is a well written, poigiant account of a tragic episode in our history. Although over twenty years old it is far better than the volume recently published by the regiment's official historian because the author had access to both surviving Pals and families. Accordingly it is illustrated throughout with personal photographs, documents etc. A visit to the Leeds Pals' memorial on the moors above Masham in North Youkshire will really make you think.
