5.0 out of 5 stars Back to Mametz with a writer who really knows, 16 April 2005
By A Customer
This review is from: Mametz Wood: Somme (Battleground Europe) (Paperback)
This book will be a 'must' for those like me, who have a fascination with the Somme and have collected the other books in the Battleground Europe series. It follows the same format as the others. The research is most impressive and in my view the book easily outclasses its predecessors in the series.

Mr Renshaw has been able to harness his background as a resident of the Somme department and it shows in the walking tours. Here is the insiders Somme battlefield. The positions of trenches meticulously identified and marked on present day photographs and the Author has clearly gone to exceptional lengths. This little book is a coruscating companion to anyone who seeks to follow in the footsteps of Siegfired Sassoon, David Jones or Wynn Griffeths. The events of July 1916 are brought alive for the reader in a way few other books of this nature have achieved.
The final pages detailing the return to the battlefield by Welsh veterans is a classic of its kind. If you buy no other book on the Somme battlefield or the Great War, buy this one.

5.0 out of 5 stars Buy it. Well worth it., 1 July 2014
This review is from: Mametz Wood: Somme (Battleground Europe) (Paperback)
Nice paper and good quality little book. I have read bits of it and it explains it well. Worth getting if you're tracing ancestor's steps during the Somme

I can't remember if this took quite a while to be delivered or the History of the 38th (Welsh) Division that I ordered, so I can't really comment on delivery.

Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Mametz Wood: Somme (Battleground Europe) (Paperback)
Apart from Serre, Mametz Wood probably carry's the most emotion of the Somme Battlefields. A 'Holy Place' for the Welsh people.
