This book provides a great deal of information about the development and use of mining by the opposing armies during WWI. It is well researched and eminently readable. Simon Jones, the author, is part of the La Boisselle Study Group which is undertaking extensive archaeological research at "The Glory Hole" on the July 1st 1916 Battle of the Somme front line. If you are a traveller to the battlefields of the First World War I highly recommend you read this.
