Format: Paperback
The odd one out of all the British divisions of the 1914-18 War, the RN Division was formed in September 1914 from Royal Marines and surplus naval reservists, organized in battalions named after distinguished sailors in naval history- Hood, Nelson, Howe, Drake etc. After early action in defence of Antwerp the division went to Gallipoli where it landed in April 1915 and saw the campaign through to the end. In April the division was taken over by the War Office from the Admiralty and the following month it was moved to France; in July it was given the number 63. It remained on the Western Front for the rest of the war. Total casualties amounted to nearly 48,000. This is an excellent history by an accomplished writer and a well-known literary figure.

If you want to find out about the Royal Naval Division, then I don't think this is the book to do it. Because it was written in 1923, it is short on historical fact, is more of a who's-who of the officers of the RND and rarely mentions the ordinary Royal Marines and Naval personnel by name.

Jerrold's book was, for many years, the only account to cover the whole of the RND. Written in the 1920's and it must have relied on war diaries, official records, and personal notes from his time in Hawke. Quoted by every work on the RND since. His style need concentration but is typical of the period.

A masterly history of a hard worked body of men who got stuffed with all the hard jobs because they were nobody's children. They fought in all the tough battles but got no recognition
