Format: Hardcover
In an attempt to track down where my great Uncles regiment (2nd Battalion Kings Own Scottich Borderers)was during the Somme, I bought this book. Rather than being a literary narrative describing the Somme it tells in a truncated diary style the movements of the many regiments, battalions and brigades that formed Kitcheners army during this most famous battle.
If you are interested in the Somme and/or are researching material then this book is superb. Goes into the minute detail that a narrative book could not possibly do and includes maps that show locations of troop movements and in some cases even describes the weather conditions of the day. Where appropriately, casualty numbers are also listed.
By the way, I did in fact find as close as possible, where my great Uncle was killed after having visited his grave last year in Rouen with the help of this book.

Format: Hardcover
this is without a doubt one the best books that has been produced in a field that has seen no shortage of excellent works. The maps are first class, and the daily descriptions of individual regiments and companies, enables a greater understanding of the complex sequence of events. The only way to understand how good this book really is, is to read it. Quite simply fantastic. One of the best topographical studies ever. Buy it!

I bought this book as I was researching my great uncle who was killed on the Somme aged 19 in 1916. It was very helpful in finding out where his battalion was during various periods of the WW1 and it's laid out in a very easy format to follow. For those interested in the battle of the Somme itself the day by day account is excellent. Not long after buying the book I went to France to visit his grave. An unforgettable experience. The Somme in Picardy is a beautiful region of France.

Excellent work, probably mainly for those who are studying the battle in detail but also of interest to those who are trying to find out where ancestors fought and/or were killed.

Lives up to its title with information on the Battle of the Somme in WW1. If you visit the area take it with you.
