THIS book presents in a concise and handy form a record of the part taken by formations, down to brigades of infantry, in the Great War. Brief as it is, one can well imagine the labour it has cost its author; most of his leisure for the last four years has been devoted to it. Anyone who has attempted to trace exactly the services of even a single division will realize how great his difficulties must have been in recording those of the whole of the British Forces in France and Flanders. He has taken immense pains to make the record accurate, and so far as I have been able to test it I believe he has succeeded admirably. It is a record which will have great value in the years to come, and in my opinion should find a place in every regimental library.

The fact that the author is an officer of the Territorial Army is a welcome sign of the continued interest of its officers in military affairs, and especially in the feats of arms in which the Territorial Force took so glorious a part.
