4.0 out of 5 stars Interesting Book, 3 April 2005
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Redan Ridge: Battleground - WW1 (Battleground Europe) (Paperback)
Redan Ridge which lies between Serre and Beaumont Hamel has been largely neglected by historians. Now, this book does attempt to put this right. The area was fought over on 1st July 1916 by 4th Division resulting in heavy loss for no gains. Moreover, it was also the area where the final battles of the Somme took place during November 1916. All battalions who fought in the region are mentioned in the book, some suffered dreadful losses , notably the 1st Hampshires. Michael Renshaw is no academic, but does try to convey the actions in a simple way which is easy to understand and follow. There are some good maps, and some interesting photographs as well. However, there is a question mark about the quality of some of the photographs etc. Still, dont let that put you off though. There is more than enough information to keep any armchair military historian engrossed. A worthwhile addition to the Pen and Sword series on the Somme.
