This book is dedicated to all Royal Marines - past, present and future.
In One Step Too Far we follow the adventures of four former
school friends who in 1914 answer General Kitcheners call to fight
for their country. After training they are sent to Gallipoli and not
France and take a full part in the ill-fated expediton. After just
over nine months of fierce fighting and with little progress made
the Allied force was withdrawn and the men were then mostly
sent to fight in France. Added to the horrors experienced in
Gallipoli they now experienced the first gas attacks for which they
were totally unprepared. They take part in many of the great
battles of the war at Verdun, Arras and both of the Somme
offensives. Not all make it to the end of the war, but those who
do will remember the experience for the rest of their lives.
