The author has used many unpublished sources, letters and diaries of ordinary British soldiers, in the vein of Stephen Ambroses highly successful Band of Brothers.

With a concise, fast-moving account covering, ex-Commander of the British Army Barney White-Spunner tells the story through the experiences of those who fought there and their families, offering his unique perspective on the events.
