The Story of a Pals Battalion and a City at War – 23rd (Service) Battalion the Manchester Regiment (8th City)
Caroline Scott, 9th Jan 2017

The Bantams left colourful, characterful, moving and often amusing records of their experiences. Using a wealth of previously un-published sources, this book follows the Manchester men through their training, their experiences of the Somme and the Third Ypres Campaign, to Houthulst Forest where, in October 1917, the Battalion was practically annihilated.
