Published to coincide with the commemoration of the centenary of the battle of the Somme, this new study comprises twelve separate articles written by some of the foremost military historians, each of which looks at a specific aspect of the battle. Focusing on key aspects of the British, French, and German forces, overall strategic and tactical impacts of the battle and with an introduction by renowned World War I scholar Professor Sir Hew Strachan, The Battle of the Somme is a timely collection of the latest research and analysis of the battle.
The terrors of the Somme have largely come to embody trench warfare on the Western Front in modern imagination, but this new book looks beyond the horrendous conditions and staggering casualty rates to provide new, insightful research on one of the most pivotal battles of the war.
