The battle of Flers/Courcelette was one of the key battles of the Somme, 1916. Reason being was tanks were used for the first time in battle, and achieved a partial success. This account covers the actions around Flers and Gueudecourt between 15 September and 21 September 1916. It describes the various actions that took place and many of the personalities involved. My only criticism is that the walks are not well covered, certainly not as well covered in other books of the same series which is a pity. The reader may get confused trying to work out what happened and where as he reads the descriptions of the actions. Nevertheless, despite this, there are some good pictures and maps and is a worthy contribution to a remarkable series of battle actions by Pen and Sword books.
