In the early days of the First World War two volunteer Pals Battalions were raised in Bradford and this is their remarkable story. David Raw's account is based on memoirs, letters, diaries, contemporary newspaper reports, official records and archives, and it is illustrated with many maps and previously unpublished photographs. He recaptures the heroism and stoical humour displayed by the Bradford Pals in the face of often terrible experiences, but he also recounts the tragedy, pain, suffering and grief that was the dark side of war.

'Stirring account'

Telegraph and Argus

This is a well-written and well-annotated history of the 16th, 18th and 20th (Service) Battalions of the West Yorks Regt that can sit quite happily alongside other books in Pen & Sword's Pals series.
