The 137th Infantry Brigade was raised in 1939 when Territorial Army reservists were mobilized. Although designated for labour duties, the 'digging divisions' found themselves called into action and delayed the German advance during the Battle of France at a high cost in casualties. This book uses diaries and personal accounts as well as official reports to tell the story of how the unprepared troops' sacrifice helped enable the evacuation of the BEF from Dunkirk.
