Описание: Тhis is a detailed account of the attempted surrender by Lieutenant-Colonel J.F. Elkington and Lieutenant-Colonel A.E. Mainwaring at St. Quentin on 27th August 1914, their subsequent court martial and cashiering, and the rehabilitation of one of them. The Royal Warwickshire Regiment and the Royal Dublin Fusiliers were at the breaking point after days of fighting, retreating, little food, and almost no sleep. Under the extreme stress, officers had to make decisions that would be difficult even under the best of conditions. This is a fascinating study of discipline and morale.
