As General Milne explains in his prefatory note, "The army of Salonika was an offshoot of the army in France, hurriedly despatched to stem the tide of the Serbian retreat, but it unfortunately arrived too late to be of any immediate use'The difficulties and the disappointments, the tragedies and the glories of the campaign of British, French, Greek, Italian, Russian, and Serbian troops are vividly described by the Author, who, as a member of the Army was able to appreciate the deeds of the Allies in the Balkans." This Uncommon First Edition was published with a total of 40 striking, full-page plates of paintings by W. T. Wood, most of which are coloured, together with a coloured and folding map.
