World War One altered the nature of war and created a demand for transportation that only the light railway could satisfy.  Two thousand miles of 60cm gauge track were laid down and over 1,500 locomotives were supplied.  It was the two-foot gauge railway's 'finest hour' and the official war photographers were there to record it.  The men of the Light Railway Operating Companies were portrayed as they worked to build and maintain the railways, transport rations, supplies and ammunitions, convey the wounded to safety and service the locomotives.

This book presents a portrait in both words and pictures of the light railways in service on the British, Canadian, Australian and American fronts.  Supporting text includes outline history of tactical light railways, notes on locomotive development and detailed works number and running number lists of the main locomotive classes.
