Executions in World War One by Authority of the British Army Act. From the cover: “Based on years of painstaking research, this is the first book to give complete details of all these executions, including names of victims; their “crimes”; the circumstances, dates and places of execution, and of burial (where known); names of regiments and other units; and victims’ personal histories and private circumstances (where known). The authors demonstrate the ineptness, ignorance and unfairness of the British court martial system at the time, and how frequently condemned men (from almost every regiment and corps in the Army) were proved to have been formerly brave soldiers who had simply cracked under the pressure of trench warfare.”
