Book : Take Me Back to Blighty

This time a book on the Salonika campaign and nothing but! I’m not sure how I missed this, which was first published by Tommies Guides in January 2017, but it’s just popped up on eBay which seems to be selling lots of new copies at various prices. If you can tell us more about it, please add a comment to this post.
