Originally published in 1919, this 2 volume work chronicles the British missions in Mesopotamia which the author, Edmund Candler states the purpose as being 'the safeguarding of India and the destruction of the Turk.' Looking back, Candler dislikes the morbid tone of the early chapters, and looks to change them, yet fortunately for future readers looking for a first hand glimpse into this time period, he has 'left the mournful passages uncorrected. There is more truth in them as they stand.' Including these 'uncorrected' passages means that Candler writes in detail and with honesty when covering the many battles and obstacles faced by an army in a foreign land.
