This review is from: Somme (Paperback)
This is a fantastic synopsis of first hand accounts of the Battle of the Somme. In places the accounts are shocking, in others humorous. Throughout this book there is a continual background of shelling and other activity, so much so that you can almost hear it, even after putting the book down. After finishing this book, you will be left feeling stunned and empty at the tragic wastage of human life. We should be grateful to Lyn MacDonald for giving the veterans the opportunity voice their memories.
