Could you tell me in which edition of the Daily Mail this book was advertised?

I know that it has been mentioned in numerous local newspapers but have yet to see anything in a 'national' !!

The information that Mike has given you is quite correct but I must warn you that at this present moment in time it has not been released by the publishers, However it should be out well in time for Christmas.

How fortunate! I came onto this site looking for informaiton on this very same book, so I'm very pleased to have found this question.

Can anyone tell me if it will it contain anything about Private Henry Martin, 2nd/24th?

Hope you will forgive me if I don't go into specific details about just exactly what is, or isn't in the book, but suffice to say yes Henry Martin is included.

Also just to confirm the current situation as regards the book. Unfortunately there has indeed been a slight delay with the publication. However we remain confident that we will be back on track very shortly.
