Register Interest

This is the first book to uniquely focus on the actions of the 2nd Battalion Leicestershire Regiment during the First World War. This new history spans the 2nd Leicesters’military operations undertaken on the Western Front 1914-1915, in Mesopotamia 1916-1917 and Palestine in 1918. The author has undertaken extensive archival research and made use of previously unpublished primary sources from public archives, artefacts kept by direct descendants and collectors of 2nd Leicesters memorabilia. This work is considerably enriched by the author’s access to previously unpublished photographic archives. The extensive use of Helion’s cartographer has also ensured that the maps are appropriately embedded in the text. The 2nd Leicesters fought with valour and distinction winning one Victoria Cross, handfuls of Military Crosses, and Distinguished Conduct Medals in abundance - in actions that ranged from the Western Front, Mesopotamia and Palestine. Nigel Atter’s eye for detail focusses upon the actions of the Leicesters at Neuve Chapelle, Festubert, Loos – Sheikh Sa’ad, the Dujaila Redoubt and Sannaiyat – Meggido, Beirut and Tripoli.
