    The 'path of glory' is certainly one lined with blood and heartbreak - no glory can be attributed to the Gallipoli Campaign. The 52nd Lowland Division and in particular the 5th Argylls of Greenock, Gourock and Port Glasgow have been largely ignored in the history of this campaign. This novel describes in grim detail the experiences of these men and boys. The front cover shows the happy smiling faces of the Battalion at camp. How this would change! We are fortunate that an author such as George Blake decided to tell the story of the 5th in novel form, perhaps as a way of exorcising his own demons from fighting at the Dardanelles. This book should be required reading for everyone from the Inverclyde area. These men fought, thinking that the 12th July would be forever remembered as the day the 5th Argyll and Sutherland Highlanders sacrificed themselves on the slopes of Achi Baba in 1915. Is it?
