SLAUGHTER ON THE SOMME The Complete War Diaries of the British Army’s Worst Day

£16.99 £8.99

An exhaustive transcription of the War Diaries for all the front line units that the authors can identify as having gone over on the morning of 1 July 1916.
The authors have drawn together, for the first time ever, all the War Diary entries for those battalions that went ‘over the top’ on 1 July 1916. Written as the events of that terrible day unfolded, or immediately afterwards, the diary entries are the words of the survivors, painstakingly transcribed from the original hand-written documents. Together they form the most comprehensive and unique narrative of “The First Day Of The Somme” – a day which even now still touches so many families both in the United Kingdom and around the world.
