5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent, but caution - it is exactly what the title states.
Dr.Stephen Bull is a very experienced historian and writer, this is another of his excellent books as it is two in one, depicting as it does the two protagonists of the Somme 1916 and is, in my opinion, one of the best short histories of the battle.

2.0 out of 5 stars Kindle edition useless for pictures and maps...
The written content of this book is absolutely fine. The issue is that when viewed on a 10inch Android device there is no way to enlarge the maps or pictures. Pictures that go across two pages in the physical book go across one page in the Kindle edition. Small pictures are the size of postage stamps.

This review is from: British Infantryman vs German Infantryman: Somme 1916 (Combat Book 5) (Kindle Edition)
Dr.Stephen Bull is a very experienced historian and writer, this is another of his excellent books as it is two in one, depicting as it does the two protagonists of the Somme 1916 and is, in my opinion, one of the best short histories of the battle. Of course both armies evolved over the whole of the Great War and the majority who made up the units of 1914 were very different from those of 1916, who again varied greatly from two years later. Here we have the unseasoned volunteers of the British, sure of the righteousness of their cause, versus their enemy whose units were still leavened with many professional pre-war regulars; this was to be both their graveyards and a blow to the German army from which it never truly recovered. My only criticism of the book is a frequent Kindle problem - the maps which I am sure in the printed version are, because of its larger format, easier to read than viewing it on a 'tablet'.
