Overview by: marc
This is a 2 book set that describes the activities of the CEF up to September 1915. Colonel Duguid held the position of Official Historian when he wrote these. The books contains 9 fold out maps and 14 maps in a pocket in the 2nd volume. Approximatly 1,000 pages including 854 appendicies. This was intended to be a multi-volume history, and unfortunatly only the first was written. This is a must have for any serious CEF collector or historian.

A reasonably priced, searchable CD version is available from Archive CD Books

  A Must have. Pity the other volumes were never completed.
