Author and historian Dr Bill Mitchinson talks about his latest book ‘Of No Earthly Use’ that explores the role, contribution and effectiveness of 2nd line Territorial Force divisions on the Western Front during the Great War.

Raised late in the war and deployed from 1917, Bill talks about the role, effectiveness and legacy of these Territorial Force divisions and the contribution they made to the BEF’s war effort. He argues they were as effective as other divisions but frequently overlooked by historians. This book is published by Helion & Co.
