Excerpt from Breaking the Hindenburg Line: The Story of the 46th (North Midland) Division
Major priestley's book is not intended as an official record; nevertheless it affords a graphic and accurate account of what took place on a small but decisive sector of the Western fron... t during the Battles of the Hundred Days.
It was my good fortune to take over command of the North Midland Division at a critical moment of its career, and just before we marched south to join General Sir H. Rawlinson's Fourth Army. To my predecessor, major-general W. Thwaites, must be ascribed the credit of having organized and trained the Division into a fighting machine in which every officer and man was imbued with a real soldier's spirit.
It is to this fixed determination to win through at all costs, regardless of incidents on ¿ank and in rear, that I mainly attribute the successes won by the Division.
