Gliddon Books, new ed., 1990. 184 pp., 7 photo-ills., + 14 maps. Laminated boards ; 24 x 16cm. A little discolouring to covers with the red title typically faded on spine o/w Nr.FINE. In 1914, Lloyd George sought to create a Welsh Army which was to be 'one of the most magnificent little armies ever turned out'. Mametz traces its fortunes to a fateful encounter at Mametz Wood on the Somme where, for a moment, most of the British Army stood still and all eyes focussed on the Welshmen. This is the second and better edition of the two.
