SOMME OFFENSIVE: MARCH 1918: BRITISH EXPEDITIONARY FORCE

£19.99 £5.99

An account of the British Expeditionary Force’s defensive battle on the Somme in March and April of 1918. It starts with the huge German offensive along a 60 mile front on 21 March. Third and Fifth Armies then had to make a series of fighting withdrawals in which some battalions had to fight their way out while others were overrun. This follows the now established Rawson style of a chronological overall order, with army, corps and division events going from north to South.
