The 9th Kings was a territorial infantry battalion when the Great War (World War I) began. On the 4th of August 1914, a telegram containing one word arrived at their headquarters: "Mobilise!" This book follows the unit from mobilisation in 1914 through to the demobilisation in 1918 after the armistice. Along the way, they take part in all of the big battles, Somme, Arras, Ypres along with a near continuous series of skirmishes and patrols while in the front line.
