This book covers the armies and forces that fought in East Africa and the Middle East along with special rules that would apply to those areas. These theaters tended to consist of more mobile action and ambushes instead of the trench warfare that World War I is known for. There were exceptions (Gallipoli being the biggest) but it generally holds that you will not be going “over the top” using these lists.
