The Somme (Pan Grand Strategy Series)
The Somme (Pan Grand Strategy Series)
by Anthony Farrar-Hockley
Edition: Paperback

5.0 out of 5 stars A Classic Account of a great battle., 24 Feb. 2001
I first read this book a number of years ago. It is an excellent read. Gives a lot of background to the Somme planning and why it failed with dreadful casualties. Some of the battle descriptions are really good. Might be too academic for some tastes, but the narrative flows beautifully. Gives a good account of the Flers/Courcelette battle of 15th September; but it omits quite a lot of the final Ancre battles of November. Nevertheless, it remains one of the outstanding books on the Somme of 1916.

4.0 out of 5 stars A BBC Classic!, 24 Feb. 2001
I first watched this during the winter of 1958-1959 and it had me on the edge of my seat throughout. BBC must be congragulated for this re-release, but it is spoiled by not having the end of episode cliffhangers which would have enhanced it throughout. Still, maybe another re-release might be in the air. Although it has a dated look with mono sound, the atmosphere never lets up. The visit by Quatermass and the policeman to the ruined house is a gem! Also who could forget the corporal who saw a ghost walk through the wall; the discovery of long dead Martians in the missile; the drill operator running through the streets of London trying to escape Martian memories, and the final scenes of the Devil hovering over a ruined London. A classic indeed!
