The Battle for Lone Pine - Four Days of Hell at the Heart of Gallipoli
The Battle for Lone Pine - Four Days of Hell at the Heart of Gallipoli
by David W. Cameron
Edition: Paperback

5.0 out of 5 stars Well researched and presented in a way that does not diminish a formidable foe namely the Turkish soldier who bore his suffering, 10 Oct. 2014
I will be as brief and to the point as possible. Outstanding, visceral, long overdue, humbling. Well researched and presented in a way that does not diminish a formidable foe namely the Turkish soldier who bore his suffering with great courage in confrontation with probably the finest troops (alongside the Canadians) who fought in the first World war on behalf of Great Britain.

Mister Cameron is a master story teller and this may well be his defining work. Not easy to get hold of though in this country - I purchased it from the USA, but well worth the cost and the effort. It tells the story of the solitary victory in an otherwise losing campaign. It is not twentieth century mechanized slaughter aka the Western Front but man on man slaughter from a by-gone age in extremes of heat, dust and disease - set under the burning sun of a faraway ancient land whose relevance to the aims of the greater conflict with Germany never seem to be the overriding factor. They fought for their mates and themselves then for King and Country.
I shall visit the Gallipoli peninsular next September and seek out Lone Pine with new found respect for all who fought and died there and with humility and gratitude it never befell me and mine to suffer such an experience.

Fine but these are pull on where at this price I would have expected to stride into them and zip up the flies. May be a problem doing a number one on a foul day!! Good quality water proof material though.

Typical Berghaus quality but beware thunder looks more like rain on an evergreen forest...No where near the description. Good item though just wrong colour!


Covenant with Death
Covenant with Death
by John Harris
Edition: Hardcover

5.0 out of 5 stars A thinly veiled story of the 12th (Service) battalion York and Lancaster Regiment The Sheffield Pals, 30 April 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Covenant with Death (Hardcover)
Great condition and very good customer service. I am eternally grateful to the seller for giving me the opportunity to own this book.

An absolute classic, a masterpiece of war fiction. John Harris puts you right on the front line of the Somme on the fateful infant July day. I recognised the veiled references to my home city of Sheffield, this may have added to the emotion of reading this book with a somewhat vested interest in that I felt extremely proud once more of the achievement of the soldier volunteers from my own city.

this aside it is a timepiece - a view finder into the first great tragedy of war in the twentieth century.

Many thanks once again to the seller, to John Harris and in particular the 'Sheffield Pals'.

5.0 out of 5 stars A tribute to the bravest of our country, 30 April 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Terrific book and great delivery/customer service.
Told from the soldiers point of view, as an amateur first world war historian this book has helped to answer my questions about the BEF & Kitchener's new armies. The questions I would have loved to ask the men who served in person but who have now passed into the annals of history .. may they rest in eternal peace.

We shall never see their likes again.

5.0 out of 5 stars Historians bible, 27 April 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I love the way this book gets right at the nuances of WW1. In an unexpected way I found it an emotional read even though it is non fiction. It brought home the indefatigable nature of the British soldier with his gallows humour and 'see everything say nowt' mentality that became a vital survival mechanism.

See review of Peter Doyle's other book 'Tommy's War: British Military memorabilia 1914-1918.

I can only give this four stars because of the repetition of info in Peter Doyle's other book 'The British Soldier of the First World War' apart from this an excellent book.
