Customer Review

on 2 May 2010
I didn't enjoy this book as much as her book about Paschendaele, but it must be said that for the personal side of war it is pretty good. I have two negative comments about it:

- The maps used to visualise the situation at a particular time aren't very clear and I found it hard to follow the overall story using them. I even went so far as to download a couple of Somme battle maps from the internet which were much more helpful.

- As others hve said, the German side is not very well covered at all. I understand that there may have been difficulties in doing this, but with such a plethora of British and commonwealth accounts, it wouldn't have been THAT difficult to research the German perspective.

Other than these two minor points, it is a very capable account of one of the most famous actions that the British Army has ever participated in and a worthy salute to the men of Kitchiner's Army.
