3.0 out of 5 stars Very little information of the battle
This map is good to find all the cemeteries and memorials, but not much to help follow the battle. It only shows the front lines on 1st July and 17th Nov, doesn't show how any units advanced or any dates. There is only 1 contour to show high ground and only main roads are shown so you can't even see the way to drive to some cemeteries. Other maps would be needed such as...

This review is from: Major and Mrs.Holt's Battle Map of the Somme: No. 1 (Map)
This map is good to find all the cemeteries and memorials, but not much to help follow the battle. It only shows the front lines on 1st July and 17th Nov, doesn't show how any units advanced or any dates. There is only 1 contour to show high ground and only main roads are shown so you can't even see the way to drive to some cemeteries. Other maps would be needed such as the modern IGN maps, or wartime trench maps. But for only £4 it is value for money, and the paper seems tough enough to survive being in the field.

This review is from: Major and Mrs.Holt's Battle Map of the Somme: No. 1 (Map)
Graphical companion to the fantastically detailed volume on the battlefield. You need both (they are normally sold that way) my copy of the book was second hand and the map missing. If you are planning a battlefield visit I would very definitely use these in the planning, I did and it enhanced the visit no end.
