Nearly a century after they were formed, and only in existence for five years, the Royal Naval Division established themselves as an elite fighting force during WW1 both in Europe and Galipoli.
Whilst the books focus is on Brigadier General Asquith (son of PM) the unique nature and character of the Division unfolds. Written in a highly readable style the book is well supported by maps and photos.
The author reveals this was a labour of love and is to be congratulated on a compelling read. This is a must for both the amateur WW1 historian and professional alike.
