On October 9th, a group of 85 men from the 10th Battalion, Australian Imperial Force were sent out on a seemingly pointless raid. At least 35 disappeared without a trace. The mystery of what happened at Celtic Wood has never been officially solved and remains a point of contention between the British and Australian governments. The authors of two previous books on Ypres, Salient Points I and Salient Points 2, have joined forces to solve the mystery of what happened to the men, why the raid was ordered, and why the British government has continued to withhold an explanation of these events. Anatomy of a Raid is both a gripping narrative of World War I and an intriguing modern detective story, and is the first of the authors' works on the Celtic Wood mystery to be generally available in the U.S.
