Inhaltsangabe

FNH Audio presents a complete and unabridged audiobook covering the war-time activities of the 5th Battalion Highland Light Infantry during the First World War. It was initially published in 1921, just a few years after the end of the Great War. The author was Colonel F. L. Morrison C.B., D.S.O., V.D., who served with the battalion during the war. The book opens with the battalion setting sail for the East, destined to take part in the Gallipoli campaign.

On arrival, they find themselves with only a couple of days to acclimatise before being thrown into the trenches. They have to come to terms with a lack of supplies, terrible weather and constant attacks. The book details all of the combat actions that the 5th take part in on the peninsula.

As you listen, you'll become familiar with the individual trenches and some of the personalities. With the evacuation of Gallipoli, the 5th find themselves off to the desert and Cairo. We get to follow them as they defend Suez, cross the Sinai and battle at Gaza and beyond. The story continues as they leave Palestine for the dirt and mud of the Trenches in France. It's there that the battalion wins its first Victoria Cross of the war.

This book is a fascinating insight into the workings of a World War I battalion in action, from the digging of trenches to the organisation of a solid defensive position and the patrolling of no-man's land. It's also sprinkled with occasional amusing anecdotes that show the spirit of man shining in even the most desperate of situations.
