Book Description 1st ed., 1988. Xv + 490 pp., numerous photo-plates + 82 maps, partly cold. D.j., 25 x 18cm. FINE. Complete in itself, this is the second book in the series that fills in a gap in the history of the Royal Regiment of Artillery. It deals with the Forgotten Fronts where the Regiment fought in the First World War: the Near and Middle East, Italy and Africa. It also describes the part played by the Regiment in the defence of the UK and the problems of raising a force of artillery of over half a million men. It is a story of human endurance in Mesopotamia, Palestine and North Africa; in Italy and Macedonia; in East and West Africa and at Gallipoli. It covers both British Gunners and the many thousands from Australia and New Zealand, India, East, West and South Africa and many others who rallied to the call. This book is adorned with numerous photographs and eighty-two partly coloured maps. Scarce. Seller Inventory # C124B283
