Although the battalion was formed in 1914, it remained in England until 1917, so its combat history is inevitably confined to the latter stages of the war.

Produktbeschreibung
A regimental and battle history of the Liverpool Rifles with a Nominal Roll This First World War, British Army battalion history provides an overview of the activities of the Liverpool men on the Western Front. Although the battalion was formed in 1914, it remained in England until 1917, so its combat history is inevitably confined to the latter stages of the war. Part of the 57th (West Lancashire) Division, the 'Rifles' took part in all the fighting undertaken by that division from February 1917 to the end of hostilities. The battalion revealed its offensive spirit in the Third Battle of Ypres, the breaking of the Drocourt- Queant switch of the Hindenburg Line, the Battle of Cambrai and the capture of the French city of Lille. It spent long periods of time engaged in trench warfare and suffered in the gas attack on Armentieres. This book will be of especial interest to genealogists since it contains a nominal roll of 4,000 regimental names with details of those who were killed in action, or died of wounds and disease. To give the regimental history broader historical context this unique Leonaur edition contains Cruttwell's overview of the battles in which the battalion was notably involved including Messines, Passchendaele and Cambrai. The book contains photographs and maps some of which were not included in the principal work. Leonaur editions are newly typeset and are not facsimiles; each title is available in softcover and hardback with dustjacket.
