This book is well worth the price. It includes statements of the court of inquiry into the actions of a number of officers of the BVC.
If you read my artical on this site I sumerize the crimes committed by the officers charged. Since the Court martial documents are missing for the trial of Morant Handcock and Witton this gives a clue into the princible crimes.
It also shows the other side of the crimes, the families of the victims and the post trial actions.
Remember the Officers were brought to trial because of Australian soldiers in the BVC were so sickened with what they had done they had to tell, that with Taylor's reports to Army HQ on the actions of the BVC brought it all to a head with the sad but justified resaults for Morant and Handcock.
