Editorial Reviews

Booknews
Inaugurates a series publishing studies on historical and contemporary aspects of land power from the 18th century to the present; it is projected to include edited collections of essays and classics from time to time. 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. Distributed by ISBS. Paper edition (unseen), $24.50. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknew.com)
