3.0 out of 5 stars First Seven Divisions, 21 Dec. 2010
Propagandist material written some 18 months after the engagements in question and while the war still had over two years to run. Corrected and revised seventeen times, by which time it was two years out of date and well into the First Battle of The Somme. It has been acclaimed as having been written by someone there at the time. Unlikely, as Captain (ret'd) Lord Ernest Hamilton (11th Hussars) was 56 when he wrote it. Interesting but barely complete or comprehensive.
