Dawn Raid: Bombardment of the Hartlepools

J M Ward


An excellent account of the naval bombardment on the 16th of December 1914.
Guns of the Northeast: Coastal Defences from the Tyne to the Humber

Joe Foster


A detailed study of the coastal defences of North East England, including accounts of the bombardment of the East coast in 1914, with many excellent photgraphs and diagrams.
Bombardment: The Day the East Coast Bled

Mark Marsay


A well researched book with many personal accounts of the events of the 16th of December 1914
Retreat and Rearguard 1914: The BEF's Actions from Mons to the Marne

Jerry Murland


The British action at Mons on 23 August 1914 was the catalyst for what became a full blown retreat over 200 blood drenched miles. This book examines eighteen of the desperate rearguard actions that occurred during the twelve days of this near rout. While those at Le Cateau and Nery are well chronicled, others such as cavalry actions at Morsain and Taillefontaine, the Connaught Rangers at Le Grand Fayt and 13 Brigades fight at Crepy-en-Valois are virtually unknown even to expert historians. We learn how in the chaos and confusion that inevitably reigned units of Gunners and other supporting arms found themselves in the front line.
