April 30- May 1 Anthony McAllister
The Newfoundland Regiment is renowned for many things, probably most notably for the battle at Beaumont - Hamel.
But historian Anthony McAllister has uncovered an episode of equal bravery under fire.
He tells the story of the regiment and the battle at Monchy-le-Preux on April 14, 1917, nine short months following Beaumont Hamel, in his new book, The Greatest Gallantry.
I spoke with Anthony McAllister this week.
