The Bedfordshire Regiment in the Great War
'1st Bedfordshires. Part One; Mons to the Somme'
By Steven Fuller
Sorry to report that I have no Part One copies left. If you have trouble finding one elsewhere, please let me know and I will ask the Publisher what options are available
This volume tells part one of the battalion's story between 1914 and the end of the Battle of the Somme in 1916, with Part Two; Arras to the Armistice concluding their remarkable story.
The battalion were heavily engaged throughout the early months of the war and were on the front lines until the very end, over four years later. As a result, doing their complex story the justice it deserves has been achieved through splitting the 160,000 word history into two volumes, thus ensuring their story is told properly.
