I visited the Somme battlefields around Albert last month for the first time and kept my Middlebrook guide close at hand. It is really well-documented and very helpful. Thanks to the clear and precise explanations I understood much more about the places I was seeing. Don't leave without it ! I also very highly recommend Martin Middlebrook's excellent "the first day on the Somme".

Having visited the Somme four years ago, and about to embark again soon (May 2014), I recently purchased this guide. Middlebrook's book is full of facts and information, the research and dedication involved in producing the guide beggar's belief. An absolute must for a Somme visitor, and an extremely useful reference book to own.
