Written by William Devine in 1919, this book describes the history of the 48th Battalion of the AIF from 16 March 1916 when they were raised in Egypt.
 

In twenty-two chapters William Devine covers the formation of the battalion, the march to Serapeum, training for France, their time in France – La Somme and Pozières Ridge – in Flanders, Bullecourt, Passchendaele Ridge, Meteren to the Amiens Road, the defence of Amiens, Monument Wood, the Battalion’s last engagement and the days of the Armistice. In two appendixes the dead of the battalion are listed along with those who received honours and awards.

'From Flesselles to Franvillers, then on to Dernancourt, then to Fricourt, stopping but a night at each village, so that five days after their sports meeting at Flesselles they were again in the front line trenches at Gueudecourt. Here all the hard conditions of their first winter term in the trenches were again encountered, but encountered with even more efficiency and success. Ways and means of communicating with the front line were perhaps more difficult than before, the shortest route over which ammunition and rations had to be man-handled involving a distance of two miles ...'

There are a number of black and white illustrations and four maps.
