WITH THE 1/5th ESSEX IN THE EAST

WITH THE 1/5th ESSEX IN THE EAST  


OUR PRICE: £14.50  

The 1/5th Essex battalion's Great War was spent entirely fighting the Turks - first in Gallipoli, then in Egypt, Gaza and Palestine. This is their story.
Unusually for a British service Battalion, the Fifth battalion of the Essex Regiment spent its entire Great War service in action against the Turks. The battalion had a bloody baptism of fire when it was thrown into the inferno of Gallipoli in 1915, fighting in the trenches near Anzac Cove. The rest of its war was spent in Egypt, guarding the Suez Canal, and then in Gaza and Palestine, where the battalion formed part of Allenby's successful advance to capture Jerusalem and Damascus in 1918. Illustrated by photographs, maps and accompanied by a Roll of Honour, this is an unusually fine history of a unit that, though not on the western front, still saw savage fighting.
