Somme Mud - we remember them,
This review is from: Somme Mud (Paperback)
I was interested when I saw this book as my grandfather was at the Somme but would never speak of it. I had heard about it in history and seen a few television programs but I was interested to learn about it from the mind and voice of one who was there.
Once started the book is very hard to put down. My respect for my grandfather and those who went off to fight this war has grown tremendously.
A must read for those wishing to know about those unsung heroes who gave their all.

As with your grandfather , mine also was at the first battle of the Somme as a stretcher bearer (at age 17 no less). he also never talked about it. this book will definitely be on my "to read" list immediately. I also recommend "Shots from the Front" a well illustrated account of the tommy's life in the First War
