Like so many of the major battles of World War I, the Battle of Loos, in September 1915, was a tragedy for fighting men on both sides. It was, however, particularly devastating for Scottish soldiers, as the Highland Light Infantry, the Seaforths, and the Argyll and Sutherland Highlanders bore the brunt of the German machine gun attacks, to devastating effect.
This novel tells the story of the Battle of Loos through the eyes of Kenny Roberts, a soldier serving with the Fourth Black Watch alongside the Punjabi Muslims of the Vaughan's Rifles; it brings the tragedy of Loos to life in vivid, unforgettable detail.
