Gerald Gliddon's classic survey of the Somme battlefield in 1916 is supported by a wide selection of photographs and testimony of those who took part. It covers famous battle sites, such as High Wood and Mametz Wood, as well as lesser known villages on the outlying flanks, and includes a day-by-day account of the British build-up on the Somme and the ensuing struggle, British and German orders of battle, and a full history of the cemeteries and memorials. There are also thumbnail biographies of all the senior officers to fall, the winners of the Victoria Cross and those who were "shot at dawn." Somme 1916 is essential reading for anyone interested in World War I.
