Personal comment from someone who was there, 26 Nov 2009
A good read, my father as a nineteen year old national serviceman took part in this battle serving with 1RUR.
He served with, and knew Lt.Potts, who actually saved his patrol from an ambush during this battle.
He recently stated to me after reading the book that people should be reminded that the Royal Ulster Rifles never gave any ground during this battle.
Whilst the emphasis focuses on the Glosters, please remember the major part other units had in this infamous battle.
