The Romance of the Last Crusade

£20.99

Product description

Very short, highly anecdotal memoir of a machine gun officer's WWI adventures in France, the Balkans, and finally with Allenby across Arabia. Many of the anecdotes are entertaining, even moving. This book does a decent job reminding us that Allenby's army did most of the heavy lifting, while the threat of Lawrence's band on the flanks or cutting down a column on the move made the Turks quick to retreat rather than get boxed in at the end of the campaign. One is left wondering how many men from Gilbert's unit survived the whole war, first in the trenches of France, a few months of combat near Salonika, and finally enduring very harsh conditions and lack of supply in the Middle East.
Slight fading of the front board. Yellowing of the pages.
