His account is a detailed insight into the logistics of the Mesopotamian Campaign, with a chronological account of operations accompanied by descriptive chapters relating to working conditions, personnel, and so forth.

Octavo. Original blue cloth, titles to spine and within simple blind frame to front board gilt. Photographic frontispiece, 27 similar plates, folding area map. Extremities lightly bumped and rubbed, a few small markings to sides, pale foxing to title-page and sporadically to the text. A very good copy.
