About the Author:

His first book, Frontline Essex, was published by Sutton last year and his second, Frontline Kent in September 2006. He is a member of Hornchurch Local History Society and lives in Romford, Essex; his interest in this subject was awakened as their Grey Towers base was close to his home.

Book Description Spellmount, 2007. Hardcover. Book Condition: New. Dust Jacket Condition: New. Brand new. Pristine. No markings. The British raised many special battalions during the Great War, the Pals, the Bantams, the Universities and Public Schools Battalion, but the Sportsmen's Battalion was particularly unique. Exempt from conscription, many were strapping athletes, others enthusiastic but overage, one a veteran of the Gordon relief expedition, some rumored to be in their 60s. Once in France the battalion participated in the Somme battles, were forced back during the 1918 German offensive, and later occupied Cologne. Illustrated, photographs, drawings. Shipped carefully packed in a sturdy box. Bookseller Inventory # 013343
