'1st Bedfordshires. Part One; Mons to the Somme'
By Steven Fuller
On general release 11 November 2011
For those of you who have been asking when I would
do this, here's the answer!
Courtesy of the support extended by author and publisher
Steve Darlow at Fighting High, part one of the battalion's
story covers between 1914 and the end of the Battle of the Somme
The battalion were heavily engaged throughout the
early months of the war and were on the front lines until the very
end, over four years later. As a result, doing their complex story
the justice it deserves within a specific word limit has always
been a personal concern of mine. However, rather than compromise
the quality and detail in any way, Steve (the publisher) is happy
for us to cover their history in two parts and in doing so, ensure
their story is told properly
228 pages, plus photograph section, notes, etc..
