The Hoarse Oaths of Fife

Chris Moore, MA 1978

'The Hoarse Oaths of Fife' re-fights in novel form the Battle of Loos, 25th September, 1915,which surpassed by far every previous slaughter of Scottish fighting men. The German machine guns reaped them in swathes - the Highland Light Infantry at Mad Point, the Seaforths at Fosse 8, the Argyll and Sutherland Highlanders at Cuinchy brick stacks.
