Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Another excellent addition to the Osprey Campaign series. While there is a limitation to the depth in which a subject can be covered in this format, the glory of the series is the exceptional quality of the maps; and lets face it, you can't write a serious book on a campaign or battle without lavish provision of maps. Without a map, you are left with a meaningless gazetteer of towns and places (Read Stutterheim's account of Austerlitz and you will see what I mean). Four full page maps; one half page; and three double page panoramas enable you to follow the action and understand what happened, where, and why. I enjoyed the book immensely.

I have read a lot of the Osprey World war 1 Campaign series and this is one of the best. Turner gives a very good account of the battle following the usual "Campaign" format but he seems to give a better background than most of the other authors, it didn't just follow a blow by blow account. Peter Dennis provides his excellent illustrations.

Not only the name of his Regiment precedes him...this book also now...
Concise and to the point this Campaign book was a pleasure to read after the 2004 fiasco Campaign books of Osprey. (High priced mass publications without any effort behind them like No. 142 Dunbar, even difficult to resell!)
At last they have found back to quality, instead of quantity.
Alexander Turner has done a fine job of a complex subject.
But then I didn't expect less from an Irish Guards Officer.
Excellence is what he strived for...excellence is what he achieved.
Quis Separabit me and this book.
