OF NO EARTHLY USE: The 2nd Line Territorial Force Divisions and the Western Front

OF NO EARTHLY USE: The 2nd Line Territorial Force Divisions and the Western Front
by Mitchinson, K W

1-228760

Examines the UK's 2nd Line's struggle to reach establishment, discover a role, and achieve a degree of efficiency. These difficulties defined the emerging qualities and ethos of the formations and of their component units. Analyses of their performances in different battlefield scenarios affords assessments of the divisions' fighting power. Their acquisition of battlefield skills, their conceptual understanding of the war's evolving character, and their development of organizational and command structures are examined critically through the prism of both contemporary and modern doctrine.

In addition to the experiences of general trench warfare, 2nd Line divisions fought at Fromelles, Bullecourt, Third Ypres, Cambrai, and in the German offensive of March 1918. In the same way as for many divisions, some of their engagements were poorly planned, ill-prepared, and badly executed; others demonstrated a developing maturity and willingness to learn from mistakes. Includes 36 color photos, 8 maps, and 11 tables.
