“Men, we can only die once: if we have to die, let us die like men — like Die-Hards. ” Said Second Lieutenant R P Hallowes during the First World War, echoing the sentiment of two-hundred years before. It was the battle cry that had led to the Middlesex Regiment’s enduring name one-hundred years before, when Colonel Inglis, commander of the 57th Regiment of Foot cried “Die Hard, 57th. Die hard. ” as he lay wounded at the Battle of Albuera. The Die-Hards. It was a reputation the men of the Middlesex regiment would take into the trenches. Everard Wyrall continues his detailed and encompassing history of the Middlesex Regiment during the First World War. Volume II begins with the German retreat to the Hindenburg line in 1917 and follows the regiment to the end of the war. After victories at Arras and Messines, the regiment were then bogged down in the now infamous fields of Passchendaele. In 1918 the Die-Hards found themselves defending against the great German Offensives. In the summer of 1918 the British Army pulled out of the trenches and the Die-Hard’s were plunged into mobile warfare. Battalions of the Die-Hards also served in Italy, Salonika, India, Mesopotamia and Palestine. When peace came, the fight was not over for one company of the Die-Hards. Civil War in Russia took these men to the doomed Murmansk Campaign… Each battle had its own acts of extraordinary bravery or kindness, in what must have seemed like the end of the world. Praise for Everard Wyrall 'It displays the true regimental spirit' - Sir Ivor Maxse ‘Captain Everard Wyrall is an indefatigable military historian. ’ – The Spectator ‘It is a record of patience and determination, of self-sacrifice and bravery. ’ – Field Marshal George Francis Milne Everard Wyrall (1878-1933) served in the Boer War, the First World War, and the Third African War. He was an author, journalist, and historian who contributed significantly to the literary commemoration of First World War, compiling extensive official military histories, including, among others, those dedicated to the Somerset Light Infantry, Middlesex Regiment, King’s Liverpool Regiment, and West Yorkshire Regiment.
