The Loyal North Lancs is one of the proudest names among British Army Regiments, and this massive history is a fitting memorial to their performance in the Great War. The Regiment served in virtually every theatre - the Western Front; Gallipoli; Egypt; Palestine; East Africa and Macedonia; - and this book tells the story of them all. The First Battalion of the regiment were in at the first - taking part in the defence of Ypres at Langemarck and Gheluvelt; and were in at the finish - participating in the breaking of the HIndenburg LIne. IN between, they fought at the battles of Neuve Chapelle and Aubers RIdge in 1915; the Somme in 1916; and the battles of Arras and Passchendaele in 1917. The 2nd Battalion was sent to East Africa and took part in the disastrous attack on Tanga and the subsequent frustrating campaign against that guerilla leader of genius, General Von Lettow-Vorbeck. Towards the end of the war, the battalion served in Egypt, Palestine and on the western front. The regiment's 1st/4th and 2nd/4th (territorial) battalions fought at Festubert in 1915 and then on the Somme and in the Ypres salient and Passchendale, and took part in the breaking of the HIndenburg line.A comprehensive, plainand unvarnished history of the regiment's huge contribution to the world war, this book, fully illustrated with maps and photos, and with appendices covering awards, uniforms, colours and honours, is a book that all lovers of Lancashire and all interested in the history of the Great War will treasure.
