Chris Baker's "The Battle for Flanders: German defeat on the Lys, 1918", published by Pen & Sword

I have acquired some more new copies of my book “The Battle for Flanders: German defeat on the Lys, 1918” from the publisher and can offer them at a great price. The book has a cover price of £19.99 but is now very hard to find except on the used book market.

How good?

An excellent book“: military historian Peter Hart.

It is always a pleasure to read a book by an author as completely in command of his subject material as Chris Baker is here. He has taken a complicated story and rendered it commendably understandable within the word count imposed by all publishers!” : military historian John Lee, in his review for the British Commission for Military History

“An excellent study of a vital but often neglected battle, and should be of great value to anyone interested in the fighting on the Western Front” : History of War website
