5 out of 5
Comprehensive coverage, I think for the first time, of the part played by London (not just LGOC) buses at home and abroad during the Great War. Readers may be surprised to learn the variety of uses to which they were put, not just as troop carriers but as ambulances, pigeon-lofts, armoured cars and mobile gun platforms to name just some. Thoroughly researched, with source footnotes for each chapter, this book is also a compelling read and should be on the shelves of anyone interested in the history of World War 1 or in London Buses of the period. Excellent value at cover price and outstanding at the sale half-price. Published by the LT Museum, the book is well produced though I wonder if the photographs would have reproduced better on glossy rather than semi-matt paper. I should also have liked a list of vehicles involved if such records still exist. Highly recommended.
