Army Records Society / Sutton, Stroud, 1st ed., thus, 1997. 449 pp., cold., frontis + b&w ills. D.j., 22 x 14cm. FINE. Published for the Army Records Society, here are three, contemporary military accounts ranging from 1758 to 1916. The journal of George Durant gives a vivid description of the Expedition to Martinique and Guadeloupe during 1758 - 1759. Daniel George Robinson’s letters describe the experiences of an engineer working on the Hazara Survey during the First and Second Sikh Wars, during which he participated. The diary of the Reverend G. S. Duncan gives a very personal view of Haig’s GHQ from 1916 to 1918 and is interesting for the light it throws on the relationship between the two men and how it fostered Haig’s conviction that he had been singled out by God. Military Miscellany II is available earlier in this catalogue).
