The Fifth Leicestershire by Captain JD Hills

This book was written by Captain JD Hills and gives a factual military history of the Regiment throughout the First World War. This is in contrast to the personal nature of his letters which are concerned with everyday life at the front. We believe the two texts complement and support each other.

The whole book is available to read on-line here.

  1. There is also an excellent book “Trench Fever” by Christopher Morris which covers the 1/5 Leicestershire Regiment during this period.
