The Somme 1916: Touring th French Sector

The Somme 1916: Touring th French Sector

story continues below...

Of all the battles fought during the First World War, it is the Somme which evokes the greatest reaction because of the terrible cost in human lives. It was a wasteful battle and saw the introduction of tanks for the first time. Over the years, it has come to be regarded as a battle between the armies of Britain and German, almost to the total exclusion of other belligerents. This exhaustively-researched book corrects that imbalance, by reminding the reader that the French also played a large part in the battle. With meticulous detail, the author lays out each sector, which allows the reader to plan their own itinerary to visit any quarter of the French sector. Using GPS references and map references, along with maps, photographs and the history of events, this work will allow the reader to go where history was made.
