THE SOMME 1916: CRUCIBLE OF A BRITISH ARMY
Written by Michael Chappell. Illustrated by Michael Chappell.
Stock no. 1820861
Published by Windrow & Greene. 1st 1995. Nearly fine condition in a nearly fine dustwrapper.

An unflinching but fascinating account not just of the "First Day" which has so hypnotized every generation since 1916; but of the whole months-long progress of a battle which decisively relieved enemy pressure on Verdun, and weakened the German Army so significantly that it was soon forced to withdraw from a large area of occupied France. Large format. Green cloth boards, gilt title. B/w photos and a few colour illustrations. ISBN: 1859150071.
