This excellent book gives an deep insight into a fighting unit typical of many in the Great War - its beginnings as an all-volunteer affair and the changes as conscription was implemented and horrendous casualties took their toll. What stands out is the deep respect the author has for these men, and his treatment of them as individuals whose fate deserves to be painstakingly researched and recorded as fully as possible. The emphasis is on sacrifice and not glory, yet the extraordinary bravery of these ordinary men from all walks of life is fully celebrated, by recounting their actions and listing their decorations. My Great-Great Uncle was one of those commemorated in this book, and Steve Morse's careful research means I could stand within a few hundred metres of the spot where he met his death almost a century ago. I cannot recommend this book highly enough, especially for researchers into family or regimental history.
