The preface states: "This Record of the recent activities of the Egyptian Expeditionary Force to the East of the Suez Canal has been prepared in order that members of that Force may be able to take home with them an acceptable account of the great advance in which they played a part. Advantage has been taken of many official documents which are available and of the experience of officers still at General Headquarters in charge of the Departments with the work of which they were familiar during the operations. Thus it has been possible to compile the Record while the events which it details are fresh in the memory." The work was first published by The Palestine News and subsequently here by HMSO as a second edition. With fifty-six, full-page, coloured maps.
