5.0 out of 5 stars Battelfield Tour, 27 April 2000
By A Customer
This review is from: The Somme Battlefields: A Comprehensive Guide from Crecy to the Two World Wars (Paperback)
This is an excellant follow-up to his classic work The First Day on the Somme. Concentrates on the numerous Commonwealth War Graves which abound in the area, there are almost two hundred of them! Gives good account of the actions which took part within the vicinity of the Cemeteries so the reader can develop a good understanding of what the battle was all about. Like his previous book, this is an intensely moving read.

5.0 out of 5 stars Salute to the fallen who made the ultimate sacrifice to ensure our freedom., 6 May 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This book will give the reader an insight to the sacrifices made by a generation of the youth of this country as well all the Commonwealth countries to preserve our freedom.
It must be remembered that the Somme was a battlefield of the 1st World War, the first shots of which were fired in Africa by the British army and the fighting arena stretched across to China.
If one book on the first world is to be read in our schools this would make an excellent starting point for a vast and underrated piece of World history which is not taught to the younger generation.

5.0 out of 5 stars AN essential read for visitors to the Somme Battlefields., 1 Sep 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Somme Battlefields: A Comprehensive Guide from Crecy to the Two World Wars (Paperback)
A very comprehensive guide to the area devastated by war in the 20th century. It is fascinating to see that even the site of the earlier Battle of Crecy is mentioned where the losing side have erected a viewing facility.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Somme Summer, 8 Feb 2001
This review is from: The Somme Battlefields: A Comprehensive Guide from Crecy to the Two World Wars (Paperback)
This book proved invaluable on a whistle-stop tour of the 1915 area in June 2000. The book provides the reader with enough information to tantalise the imagination. With a good Michelin map the memorials and cemeteries are easily found. I went to Louvencourt having read Vera Brittain's "Letters from a lost generation" to pay respects to Roland.
