So great was the reputation of Scottish combat troops in the trench warfare of World War I that an unnamed commentator told Haldane, author of the_History of the 4th Battalion, Seaforth _Highlanders that ‘the two most terrible engines of destruction ever made by man were the 51st and 15th Divisions, both Scottish. . .’

In this new evaluation timed to mark the centenary of the Great War (1914–18), Colin Campbell allows the experience of the elite 51st Division to speak for itself. He has researched battalion and brigade official war diaries and regimental and battalion histories and blends them with first-hand accounts and letters, many of which have never been published before.

It is said that German soldiers feared the 51st (Highland) Division more that any other British or Empire division.

Both detailed and touching, The 51st (Highland) Division in the Great War is an amazing book in tribute to the Scottish soldier.
