SOMME INTELLIGENCE Fourth Army HQ 1916

£19.99 £3.99

This is the original compilation of intelligence reports flowing into 4th Army HQ at Querrieu Chateau on the eve of the Somme offensive. Gleaned from a wide array of sources including PoW interviews, aerial observation, captured German documents and intercepted messages, these combined to give the Generals planning the Big Push an overly optimistic picture of crumbling enemy defences and plunging morale.
