£14.99 £4.99

This is one of the best accounts of the raising of the army that had to take place at the beginning of the war. The book deals clearly with the recruiting boom that happened as well as the establishment of the Pals Battalions. The book deals head on with the issue of when the recruitment went in to decline but also the establishment of conscription. We also see all the training issues especially with equipment as well as the ordinary man dealing with the transition from Civvy Street to army life. A true classic of Great War writing at it’s very best.
