Publisher's full brown cloth, gilt lettering on spine, maps on endpapers. Illustrated with numerous maps and photographs. Includes Bibliography, Author's Note, and Index. Somme, July 1916. For a hundred years the very name of the battle has epitomised all the horror, waste, and hardship of the First World War. There was hardly a family in the land who had not seen at least one son join up in the heady enthusiasm that swept the country in 1914. The Battle of the Somme was their baptism by fire. 150,000 of the soldiers they proudly called 'our boys' died in it; 300,000 more were maimed or wounded. No modern battle has ever been more meticulously planned, or more poorly carried-out. . Both the volume and the unclipped dust jacket are in perfect, unmarked condition. AS NEW/AS NEW.. Maps and Photographs. 8vo 8" - 9" tall. xviii, 366 pp
