THE WAR THE INFANTRY KNEW 1914 - 1919 A Chronicle of service in France and Belgium with the Second Batallion His Majesty's Twenty Third Foot, The Royal Welch Fusiliers: Founded on Personal Records, Recollections and Reflections, assembled, edited and partly written by One of their Medical Officers.  Captain J. C. Dunn. D.S.O., M.C. AND Bar, D.C.M.  Introduction by Keith Simpson.  Janes Publishers, London  1987 First thus  ISBN 0710604858  644pp Illustrated Hardback.       

This copy is in fine unmarked condition bright, and tight.  The unclipped dustwraper is sunned to the spine and has some edge wear but has now been covered in clear, removable protective film. Originally published privately in an edition of only 500 copies in 1938 this new edition has the benefit of an informed and perceptive introduction by Keith Simpson.  In a review of this new edition by John Keegan, published in the Daily Telegraph on Wednesday April 29th 1987 he writes "There are famous books and there are secret books but sometimes through word of mouth and shared enthusiasm. a secret book becomes famous.  'The War The Infantry Knew' is one of them". One of the photographs the new editor Keith Simpson has added to this edition shows a group which had served continuously from August 1914 to the armistice. They number just ten. In the interim the Second Battalion Royal Welch Fusiliers which had crossed the Channel with 1,950 men of all ranks had lost 1,145  in action.  The book chronicles the service of the Officers and men of the the Second Battalion, Royal Welch Fusiliers throughout the Great War. Captain Dunn , its Medical Officer wishing to commemorate the Battalions service after the war decided to enlist contributions from over sixty officers and men , consulting war diaries, letters as well as personal contributions from those who served in the Battalions of the regiment, being meticulous in his research, checking every detail prior to publication.    Siegfried Sassoon and Robert Graves as well as Frank Richards were amongst those who served in the battalion and the first two men were instrumental in causing Dunn to write the book in order to counteract what he perceived as half truths in their writings on the war. The book tells of the Second Battalion's part in the war from mobilisation until 1919. It is a superb chronicle of the lives of its officers and men from a military and social aspect and gives a vivid insight into their lives in billets and trenches on a day by day basis and the conditions under which they fought. The humour of the British troops is shown in full measure as is their courage   It also gives an insight into the social divide between officers and men. Amongst its officers was Captain Stockwell, known behind his back as 'Buffalo Bill' a colourful character who became a Brigadier General. Frank Richards comments on his capabilities in his usual forthright manner. The whole is a fascinating glimpse not only of the places it was sent on the Western Front and battles it took part in but a huge panorama of the war taking in the French and German side of the conflict. It is richly illustrated with maps and photographs.  Ref EE7
