Book Description London, 1987, Leo Cooper, reprint of 1967 edition, hard bound in dust jacket, 6 x 9, Fine/VG condition ( very slight scuffing to rear dj cover ), xx, 286 pages, illustrations, appendices, notes, bibliog, index.-------------------------------------------------------------Morale, good or bad, is a quality easy to recognize but impossible to define. It is the key to the survival of any community. It holds the barriers between order and anarchy, between Man and the animals. Morale is as important to a nation in peace as it is in war, on the factory floor or in an office as in a warship or in a bomber's crew, in a trade union as in a regiment. In our complex, unstable times, it is vital that we should seek to understand more of morale, what it can attain and how it can be achieved. For this reason alone John Baynes' fascinating sociological study is an invaluable contribution to the literature on a much neglected subject.-------------------------------------------------------------------But John Baynes has a unique and rewarding approach. He has taken a sample community of proven morale and then dissected it tissue by tissue, examining each under the microscope of his keenly analytical and lively mind. His "sample" is the 2nd Scottish Rifles, a battalion of that magnificent professional Army with which Britain entered the First World War. At the Battle of Neuve Chapelle in March, 1915, when it went "over the top" it was some 900 strong. Six days later the battalion marched out of the line, still a fighting,disciplined unit. It was 150 strong and was commanded by a second-lieutentant.What enabled those men to keep their spirit, their tenacity and dash in those awful six days, so graphically re-created here, was their morale. John Baynes has interviewed the known survivors of the battle and analysed hundreds of books, reports and private papers pertinent to his "sample". He examines the social background of the officers and men, their service, their homes, their education, upbringing, beliefs and attitudes. With the advantage of hindsight, he has evaluated their inter-relationships, their loyalties, and the rules and conventions by which they lived. The result is a stimulating book, important in areas far removed from the bloody fields of Flanders. Bookseller Inventory # 35655

Book Description Cassell, London, 1967., 1967. 286 pp, 8vo (8 1/2" H), hard cover in dust jacket. Ex-library. B&w photographs, maps/battle plans. "Morale is as important to a nation in peace as it is in war, on the factory floor and in an office as in a warship or a bomber's crew, in a trade union as in a regiment. In our complex, unstable times, it is vital that we should seek to understand more of morale, what it can attain and how it can be achieved. For this reason alone John Bayne's fascinating sociological study would be an inva luable contribution to the literature of an alarmingly neglected subject. But Major Baynes has a uique and rewarding approach. He has taken a sample community of proven morale and then dissected it tissue by tissue, examining each under t h e m i c r o s cope of his keenly analytical and lively mind. His 'sample' is the 2nd Scottish Rifles, a battalion of that magnificent professional Army with which Britain entered the First World War. At the Battle of Neuve Chapelle in March, 19 15 , w he n it w en t 'over the top' it was some 900 strong. Six days later the battalion marched out of the line, still a fighting, disciplined unit.
