    1. I read this book as the Squadron in which I currently serve was one of the Field Ambulances that took part in this campaign. In addition, although I am a keen amateur military historian, I know almost nothing about this particular aspect of the First World War.The book is well written and easy to read. Although it is very date-factual, as almost all history books are, there is liberal use of first-hand accounts of the various aspects of the campaign, especially the two main Doiran battles.The au [...]

    2. I don't remember my grandfather. He died when I was about 3. I've searched my memory, but there is nothing there. However, my mother told me that he'd served in Salonika during WW1. He also left behind a brass matchbox case that he'd made. It was engraved with dates and his service record from his war. I decided to try to find out moe. I was so glad that I came across this book. It certainly helped me to fill in some gaps in my family history. I loved the sections that gave personal stories from [...]

    3. nhwvejournal/689793ml[return][return]This is much more of a grass-roots story compared to Alan Palmer's geopolitical survey, livened up by direct accounts from the soldiers themselves, either from contemporary letters or from memoirs. It also concentrates exclusively on the British, with one benefit being an entire chapter on the Struma Valley battles of 1916 which Palmer almost ignores. The maps are by far the clearest of any of the books I've consulted so far (though I do wish I had access to [...]

    4. My grandfather and his brothers served in Salonika so this was very interesting to me. Along with details of battles, maps and photographs there are a lot of diary entries from the men who were there. Troops suffered from malaria and dysentery, lack of food and supplies, nowhere to go in their "rest periods" intense heat in the summer and cold in the winter. And of course they won their final battle before those in France. Yet it has all been neglected and this is a very timely reminder of what [...]

    5. This is a nice book on a niche aspect of the war. The author writes well and clearly. The book provides an ample number of maps which, given how obscure this part of the war was, are very useful to have. There are a few awkward sentences and I feel there was a bit of an overreliance on quotes. The number and size of the quotes seem to have been used in order to extend the length of the book.
