Accrington's Pals: the Full Story : The 11th Battalion, East Lancashire Regiment (Accrington Pals) and the 158th (Accrington and Burnley) Brigade, Royal Field Artillery (Howitzers) Hardback

Description

Andrew Jackson's new history tells the story of the Great War as it was experienced by the men of the 11th Battalion, East Lancashire Regiment (Accrington Pals), the 158th (Accrington and Burnley) Brigade, Royal Field Artillery (Howitzers) and their families.

Using information gathered from years of painstaking research in national and local archives and in private collections, he reconstructs, in vivid detail, the role played by these men on the Western Front.

His book, which draws extensively on diaries, memoirs and letters, follows both infantry and artillerymen into the British army's bloodiest battles of the war, giving a graphic close-up view of their experiences.

It is a moving record of the wartime service of a select group of local men during a time of unprecedented conflict.
