Under the Devil’s Eye, The British Military Experience in Macedonia 1915-1918

READ THE FULL REVIEW

A very welcome new book from an author with a passion for her subject. A well-researched study of a subject that has received far less attention than it merits. The photo-plate section is well selected, with images that have not previously appeared in a printed work. There are also extensive notes on the sources used, making this a valuable reference work in addition to being a fascinating story – Most Highly Recommended.

The photo-plate section is well selected and maps in the body of the book help in the understanding of this unfamiliar part of WWI – Very Highly Recommended.

Your Towns & Cities in the Great War, Norfolk Coast in the Great War, King’s Lynn, Hunstanton, Sheringham, Cromer & Great Yarmouth

READ THE FULL REVIEW

The publisher produces a number of fine series that provide valuable insights into history. The sad part of reviewing books is that time restricts the number of books that can be read and reviewed. As a result, the FIRE Project review team has not been able to review all of the titles in the local histories of WWI, taking only snapshots of the series. This new title is a delight and representative of the high standard achieved by the series. The text is built on thorough research and is very ably supported by a host of illustration – Very Highly Recommended.
