The book covers about five weeks from November 1917 to December when Jerusalem was captured and the author wounded. The author is evidently something of a literary figure, the text is well-strewn with poetry and his descriptions of the desert conditions as the men marched and fought from Huj to Jerusalem are vivid enough even if the language is a bit ornate at times. In one passage he is watching the men as they struggle on in the heat and the dust and flies.
