5.0 out of 5 stars Another excellent battalion history by John Sheen, 21 Jun. 2013
This review is from: With Bayonets Fixed: The 12th & 13th Battalions of the Durham Light Infantry in the Great War (Hardcover)
Too many histories of British Army battalions that fought in WW1 are little more than re-writes of the official War Diaries. Not so those by John Sheen. Beginning with his classic history of the Tyneside Irish, John Sheen's meticulous research has enabled him to combine official sources with the letters, diaries and memories of the actual soldiers to produce a series of battalion histories. The latest in the series, 'With Bayonets Fixed', features the 12th and 13th Battalions DLI and is a must for anyone interested in British infantry battalions during WW1. These two battalions of County Durham's own famous regiment fought with distinction on the Western Front and in Italy; gained two VCs; and amongst the 1,200 fallen was the English composer, George Kaye Butterworth, killed on the Somme in August 1916. As with all of John Sheen's battalion histories, this book is not only superbly illustrated with group and individual soldier's portraits, but also has detailed nominal rolls of use both to family historians and medal collectors.
