Summary The new series of Spellmount Military Memoirs provides rare and sought-after texts for the collector of classic historical works, together with rigorously selected personal narratives never before in print—destined to become classics in their own right. Llewelyn Alberic Emilius Price-Davies was awarded the Victoria Cross when serving with the King’s Royal Rifle Corps during the Second Boer War. He went on to serve as Divisional Corps liaison officer in 1914-15. His correspondence offers a rare insight into the changing face of the British Army at this time. From taking part in the Somme to Third Ypres and more, his letters show the importance of the battles and evoke the dramatic action. In 1918 he traveled to Italy, where his diaries reveal for the first time how the Allied Command functioned in this theater. Offering a unique insight into British Army High Command, this rare collection of letters offers a broad and detailed insight into World War I that will fascinate any enthusiast.
