5.0 out of 5 stars A Somme Epic!, 12 Oct 2001
By A Customer
This review is from: Beaumont Hamel (Battleground Europe) (Paperback)
On the first day of the Somme, July 1st 1916, the VIII Corps lost 14,000 officers and men trying to capture this village, the high ground surrounding it, and the neighbouring village of Serre. Beaumont Hamel was not captured until November 13th 1916.
This excellent book covers both battles of July and November. It contains excellent maps, and some amazing aerial pictures of the battlefield as it was in 1916. There are many stories of the men who fought and died there. There is also an excellent guide to the numerous battlefield cemeteries which abound in the area. A must read for the serious student of the Great War, and also an excellent guide for the visitor.
A muist buy.

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the great Somme battles., 28 Dec 2000
By A Customer
This review is from: Beaumont Hamel (Battleground Europe) (Paperback)
I first read this book a few years ago. Thoroughly researched with good maps and photos, this is a worthy addition to the many books about the somme 1916. If you are a first time visitor to the somme, then this is a must-buy. Good accounts of the terrible battle fought there during the summer and autumn months of 1916.
