Packer, Charles.


1st ed., 1964. Xiii + 164 pp., photo + other plates; 1 fldg plate at rear + plans. D.j., 21 x 14cm. D.j., & fore-edge lightly blemished o/w V.G.+ Overshadowed by the Western Front, the Macedonian campaign of 1915-18 has received little attention. This book is a reappraisal of that half-forgotten clash between armies of France, Britain, Serbia and Greece and the Central Powers. Packer follows the progress of this struggle from the formation of the British Salonika Army in December 1915 to the final bloody assault on Doiran and the grand Couronne in September 1918. Having fought in the ranks throughout the Macedonian campaign, Packer gives a personal and intimate portrayal of the ordinary soldier’s experience of war ; a lucid documentary of the campaign.
