The first volume focuses on the Palestine campaign during World War I, fought by the British-led Egyptian Expeditionary Force up to the time of its withdrawal from Syria. It also reassesses General Allenby's role as a forceful and mercurial commander, and looks at the diplomatic consequences of the campaign for post-war negotiations between the winning powers.
