Format: Paperback
The recent media coverage of the 90th anniversary of the Battle of the Somme will I am sure renew existing interest or create interest for the first time in this, one of the bloodiest battles in our history. In the summer months there is usually a steady flow of visitors to this area, some travel in private cars and others in groups, what ever their reasons, most leave wanting to learn more of events at the time of the battle itself and therefore this excellent series of books will provide them with many answers they seek and a great deal of other useful information too.

Thiepval, now famous for the Lutyens's massive memorial to the missing which bears the inscriptions of the names of over 72,000 British and Commonwealth troops who were killed and have no know graves. In the Autumn of 1918, this was the site of three months of bitter fighting, as British troops tried to capture this key area of the landscape which the Germans had turned into an impregnable fortress.

This excellent handy sized publication is without a doubt ideal to use whilst on tour. It includes many then and now photographs and make full use of original maps too. These coupled with other archive information and the excellent personal accounts of those who actually fought there, will take the reader stage by stage through the battles. They will therefore be beneficial to a wide range of readers from the expert military historians and family history researchers, through to the casual day tripper, who may be interested to learn that many of our now famous historians or the finest of battlefield guides actually kindled their interest in the Great War and distinguished careers from one of these short day trips to the Somme!
