The author has painstakingly compiled a comprehensive compendium of the exact movements of every regiment involved on the various battlefields in France and Flanders during World War One.

The book is still of crucial use and importance for research on the different location of Battalions. This is because the detail is much.  The format is clear and simple At the top of each Regiment is the order of Battle. For example underneath the Coldstream Guards it lists “Mons”, “Retreat from Mons”, ‘Marne 1914”, “Langemarck 1914” “Gheluvelt” “Nonne Bosschen” and “Givenchy, 1914”.  Then the battalions were listed underneath. Within this, are the action and movement for each month.

This, like Ray's other books on the Somme, Gallipoli and the Western Front is, quite simply, indispensable. ... Five star plus.
