An excellent book. * ISRAEL BOOK REVIEW *
First-class history. 10/10. * THE GREAT WAR *
Grainger's analysis is informed, critical, readable and supported by a wealth of unpublished and printed primary material. [...] Makes good use of soldiers' experiences bringing to life the human dimension to the fighting in southern Palestine. * JOURNAL OF MILITARY HISTORY *
Extremely good value as it is, like all books from this publisher, of high quality. [...] The one book on Palestine in the Great War that I would select. * THE BULLETIN OF THE MILITARY HISTORICAL SOCIETY *
At last a brilliant detailed work on Palestine which explains the whole campaign and uses the words of the British, Anzac and Turkish forces who were there. An excellent and very informative read. * ARMCHAIR AUCTIONS *
Grainger's analysis of battle tactics, from both British and Turkish perspectives, will captivate military buffs. Recommended. * CHOICE *
