From the rear side cover: Very few artillery unit histories have been written for the First World War, and this is the first known written specifically with East Africa in mind.
A chronological unit history of the first New Army artillery battery based upon original diaries of the author's grandfather and personal narratives of other battery members. This book contains previously unseen photographs and hand drawn maps. The trials and tribulations of the battery and the East African campaign are explored and illustrated in this very personally focused book. A very useful appendix section lists the men of the unit, the officers and awards made.
The condition of the book is generally very good. The covers are clean and bright, the spine is tight and intact, and all pages are clean, intact, unblemished and tightly bound. There is an old price printed and a small price sticker, both on the rear side cover.
