£19.99 £4.99

Jack Sheldon expert author examines the Battle of the Somme from the vantage point of the German High Command.
There are still, however,enough vignettes from the front line to testify to the harrowing fighting that took place in trench and shell hole. This book provides an entirely fresh way of looking at the Battle of the Somme 1916. It is not a rehashed narrative history of the battle. Instead, drawing heavily on examples that can be illustrated through exploitation of the primary sources still available in abundance in the archives at Stuttgart and Munich and anecdotal accounts, it explains how and why the German defence was designed and conducted as it was.
