SOMME BATTLEFIELDS
A Guide to the Cemeteries and Memorials of the Battlefields of the Somme 1914-18  

RRP: £28.00
OUR PRICE: £20.00  Black Friday Price £16.00

An introduction to the battlefields of the Somme through the cemeteries and the memorials. Every cemetery within which is buried a man recorded by the CWGC is covered. The story of the cemetery, the local memorials and information of the lives and war experiences of some of those buried in each cemetery is told.
On 1 July 1916 the Battle of the Somme began and with it the start of the significant contribution of the British and the Empire to supporting their Allies in the ‘Great War'. British and Empire soldiers died on the area covered by this book from August 1914 to the dates after the end of the war. Covering the battlefields before 1 July 1916, those of 1916, 1917 and 1918 and the support areas, this is a full guide to the cemeteries on the Somme battlefields. The book includes the French and German cemeteries as well as burials within local civil cemeteries. It has photos of each cemetery that contains more than ten men, some of the smaller burial grounds and the communal cemeteries. It tells the stories of those who won the Victoria Cross, well known sportsmen, poets and artists as well as many of the ‘ordinary' men. A brief outline of the Battles of 1916-18, Orders of Battle and other information is included. This is an invaluable addition to the collection of anyone interested in the Battles of the Somme.
