Comments: The story of the 21st and 25th Australian Infantry Brigades during the Syria Campaign from June to July 1941.

The first author was the original Intelligence Officer of the 2/14th Battalion, serving in the Western Desert and Syria; Trigellis-Smith served with the 2/2nd Field Regiment in New Guinea. 2/14th Battalion.

Staining to edge of pages and smells musty. Overall still a good reading/reference copy and has been priced accordingly.
