Report of the Advance of the Egyptian Expeditionary Force under the Command of General Allenby – Cairo, 1919 – 55 Color Maps

A Brief Record of the Advance of the Egyptian Expeditionary Force under the Command of General Sir Edmund H. H. Allenby… July 1917 to October 1918. Cairo: Government Press and Survey of Egypt, 1919. English.
The report describes the progress of the war between the British and the Ottomans over Palestine, between July 1917 and October 1918, under the command of General Allenby. The report presents, among other things, the progress of the fighting, the various high officials, a list of the regiments, deployment of forces and amount of arms and ammunition. Fifty-five color maps depicting the progress of the British forces and the withdrawal of the Ottoman forces from south to north appear at the end of the report: from Gaza and Beersheba via Judea, Samaria, and the Galilee, and the capture of Damascus and northern Syria.
The Egyptian Expeditionary Force was a military formation of the British Empire that camped in Egypt during World War I. It was comprised at first of soldiers of Egyptian, Indian and other backgrounds, but after doubt was cast upon the loyalty of the Muslim troops, the makeup of the troops was changed, and replaced mostly with British and Australian troops, together with soldiers from India, New Zealand andFrance.
[6], 113, [1] pp., 55 leaves (maps) + [1] leaf (plate, photographic portrait of Allenby), 29.5 cm. Good condition. A few stains on the first and last pages. The cover is slightly worn and damaged.
