The first (hardback) edition of this book sold out before its official publication date, and public demand has been so great that a paperback edition will now be published. Brigadier-General Herbert Hart landed at Gallipoli on 26 April 1915, commanded the Wellington Battalion during the closing stages of that campaign, then served as a battalion and brigade commander on the Western Front between 1916 and 1918. Throughout the war he kept a diary, in which he recorded his experiences in the great battles on Gallipoli, the Somme and Passchendaele. Hart’s diary is now widely regarded as one of the most important personal sources relating to the New Zealand Expeditionary Force. Exceptionally well written, it includes gripping descriptions of both combat and life behind the front line and on leave in France and United Kingdom. While Hart can appear quite detached at times, he is also a very human observer of the events around him, understanding the plight of his men, finding humour in the most unlikely situations and noticing unexpected details at moments of high tension. As a first-hand account of life in the firestorm of World War One, The Devil’s Own War is hard to beat.

This second-line Territorial battalion was formed at Liverpool in early September 1914, allocated to 171st Bde, 57th Division and landed in France on 14 Feb 1917; it fought on the Western Front for the rest of the war. The author served with the battalion for much of the war though he does spell out the periods he was away from it when he gained his information from those present at the events he describes. The battalion took part in all the fighting of the division, in Third Ypres, Drocourt-Queant Switch in the Hindenburg Line, Cambrai (Oct 1918) and the occupation of Lille. Of particular value to the genealogist and medallist are the appendices. One gives the succession of COs, 2ICs, Adjutants and Quartermasters from the formation of the battalion and, after it arrived in France, the list of the company commanders and WOs. A second appendix lists all the officers showing the period served served with the battalion and the reason for leaving, the highest rank achieved, appointments held, honours and awards and casualty details (ten dead, twenty-nine wounded), while the third does the same for the other ranks of whom 234 died. The narrative is full of incident, plenty of names mentioned as there should be in a good regimental/battalion history. and the maps are clear, marking out trench systems with names and and pinpointing features on the battlefield. The photos are good, including portrait photos of officers and battlefield scenes. This is an excellent example of a battalion history.

Unique, exciting and, at times, hilariously shocking, key features include: unprecedented coverage of World English, with equal prominence given to American and British English slang, and entries included from Australia, New Zealand, Canada, India, South Africa, Ireland, and the Caribbean emphasis on post-World War II slang and unconventional English published sources given for each entry, often including an early or significant example of the term’s use in print. hundreds of thousands of citations from popular literature, newspapers, magazines, movies, and songs illustrating usage of the headwords dating information for each headword in the tradition of Partridge, commentary on the term’s origins and meaning New to this edition: A new preface noting slang trends of the last five years Over 1,000 new entries from the US, UK and Australia New terms from the language of social networking Many entries now revised to include new dating, new citations from written sources and new glosses The New Partridge Dictionary of Slang and Unconventional English is a spectacular resource infused with humour and learning – it’s rude, it’s delightful, and it’s a prize for anyone with a love of language.
