Publisher Marketing: The men of the 'Red Rose' county during the Great War This unique 'two-in-one' edition concerns the First World War activities of The Loyal North Lancashire Regiment, a renowned British army county regiment. What makes this book special is that it combines the extremely well written firsthand experience of one the regiments reservists with a battalion history. Bolwell, the author of the personal account, found himself in the battle line very early in the war and as part of the 2nd Brigade of the 1st Division was present in the first engagements of 1914-the retreat from Mons, the battles of the Marne and Aisne, the First Battle of Ypres at the turn of the year as the conflict turned to a stalemate of trenches, wire and mud and then into 1915 and the battles of Festubert and Loos, before receiving the serious wound that ended his military career. The regimental history briefly covers the period of Bolwell's service but concentrates on the unit raised in Preston and district and sent to the front in 1915. This account describes the fighting on the Somme, Third Ypres, The Menin Road, Cambrai, Givenchy and the final advance to victory and end of hostilities. This is an essential book for anyone interested in the war the British infantry knew or those concerned with Lancashire's part in the war. Includes an Honour Role and casualty names and statistics of particular interest to genealogists.
