Straight on for Tokyo – The War History of the 2nd Battalion The Dorsetshire Regiment by Lt Col O G W White DSO OBE
Straight on for Tokyo is a remarkable book – for the story it tells, for the characters it portrays and for the quality of its telling – which together produce an outstanding account of an infantry battalion at war. Written shortly after the Second World War by Geoffrey White, one of the Battalion’s commanding officers, it paints a vivid picture of both the campaigns in which the Dorsets excelled.
This new 400-page edition is packed with photographs and available from us at the Keep Military Museum.
A must read for anybody interested in the Dorsetshire Regiment.
