VISITOR’S GUIDE THE SOMME 1916 Beyond the First Day. Beaucourt and Mametz Wood to the Butte de Warlencourt.


Sadly, Jon Cooksey did not live to see this book published. Nevertheless, his prodigous output will ensure his name will be remembered and his efforts acknowledged for years to come. This partnership with Jerry Murland has resulted in a very useful guide to the blood-soaked fields of the Somme. Mametz Wood, High Wood, Delville Wood, Guillemont, Ginchy… they’re all here, along with a timetable of the battles, usually fruitelss and costly.
