WALKING THE WESTERN FRONT THE SOMME 1916: THE FIRST OF JULY

BY: ED SKELDING

There are a lot of books describing the horror of one of the bloodiest battles in British military history, but this one is different. As well as a concise and readable account of the conflict, the author has included an extensive photographic record of the places where history was made – a view of where each major battle of the 1st July 1916 took place and some places that are difficult to find – or have already lost the evidence they once contained. The captions and narrative accompanying the images are well written and include interesting historical stories.

 This book explores the history of the battlefields through the eye of the camera.

 A landscape hardback, 208 pages, illustrated throughout.

 Published at £25.00

 Description

This book explores the history of the battlefields through the eyes of the camera. Complete with 150 prints, both in colour and black and white, taken over a twenty-year period reflecting the author’s many filming trips to the Somme, the book shows the battlefield as it was almost 100 years ago and is accompanied by a shot of the exact same spot as it stands today. The author then explains the significance of the photographs and why they were included in the book. Battleground historian Nigel Cave also contributes to proceedings and adds his expert knowledge to the narrative. While researching the battlefields, the author has taken many photographs, and each has been carefully chosen to maintain the narrative and, as much as possible, to put the viewer/reader on the spot where the action took place.
