Comments: The conclusion of W.T Massey’s Middle Eastern theatre trilogy.
The final book in Massey’s trilogy concerns the drive through Palestine into Syria, the conquest of Damascus and the harrying of the defeated Turkish and German forces as their broken armies retreated northwards towards and beyond Aleppo and the borders of Turkey itself.
In the pages of this excellent account-written as part history, part first hand account by one who was there-the reader will find many familiar and famous figures.
Here are Allenby, Lawrence, Feisal and others. Renowned regiments pass through its pages-the stalwart Yeomanry, the indomitable and cheerful Londoners, the dashing Australian Light Horse as well as the early fighter and bomber crews of the emerging air force. An essential book for those who value the impression of a campaign told with the immediacy of first hand knowledge.
