    Have read quite a few books on the subject of the 1916 landmark campaign that scars the psyche of Britain and its allied armies and their descendants. Though it is likely to be a vain plea it would be worth this book seeing a wider more general readership to help us all gain a better perspective.Other books I have read fit the category of doorstops, even one that claims to cover that momentous first day.

    A solid short book about the Somme campaign of July to November 1916. It is neither of the 'Lions led by donkeys' school nor is it entirely revisionist; Farrar-Hockley is rather supportive of Rawlinson and gently chides Haig on occasion. However, it is difficult to cover a campaign of this size in a book of this length and the narrative is occasionally muddled by sudden switches from battalion level description to the wider picture and back again.

    worth a read as it was written when the amount of active first hand accounts were high, the author is a well educated military historian and soldier and gives a factual history that does not rely on sentimentalism.
