About The Book

In this evocative 400-page book written by the authors of the iconic 'The First Day on the Somme' is a thorough guide to the cemeteries, memorials and battlefields of the area, with the emphasis on the fighting of 1916 and 1918, complete with fascinating descriptions and anecdotes.
While best known as being the scene of the most terrible carnage in WW1, the French department of the Somme has seen many other battles from Roman times to 1944. William the Conqueror launched his invasion from there; the French and English fought at Crécy in 1346; Henry V's army marched through on their way to Agincourt in 1415; the Prussians came in 1870. The Great War saw three great battles and approximately half of the 400,000 who died on the Somme were British – a terrible harvest, marked by 242 British cemeteries and over 50,000 in unmarked graves. These statistics explain in part why the area is visited year-on-year by ever-increasing numbers of British and Commonwealth citizens.
