Overview
-

Edward Cadogan kept a record of his war in words and photographs. His baptism by fire in Gallipoli made a profound effect on him and he became highly critical of the plan and the leadership. His front line experiences are balanced by his contact with senior commanders. Wounded and clearly in poor health he was fortunate to survive. After the ignominious withdrawal, Cadogan soldiers on in Egypt and Palestine increasingly disenchanted with the conduct of the War

His descriptions of conditions at the Front are complemented by his interest in family affairs at home. This compilation is not only superb military history but a unique piece of social commentary.
