I have discovered via pension records that my grandfather  - Serj. Frederick Baker - who had served in the Rangers in Kinsale for the first part of the war, was deployed in 1917 to Mesopotamia. Can anyone please recommend  a good, detailed survey of the of the campaign?

Try the Official Histories.

History Of The Great War: The Campaign In Mesopotamia 1914-1918 Volumes I-IV by F J Moberly. 1923-1927.  Available Naval-Military Press (quite expensive I think).  You could also try this website:http://wiki.fibis.org/w/Mesopotamia_Campaign 

Good reading

Thanks both. I'll be searching libraries. I did buy Jourdain's Ranging memories and that was expensive!

War Jottings by Fred Peal might be worth a look.
