Every aspect of the bloodiest battle ever fought by the British Army is examined in this searching book, which compiles information from a multitude of sources to portray each phase of the Somme offensive, from the disastrous opening day to the long, slow battle of attrition to wear the enemy down. A comprehensive effort by an experienced author. The aim is to provide a military history of the Somme campaign mostly free of the sentiment of endless first person and diary accounts of how traumatic it a was as there are many such books available for that.
