1st July 1916 saw a campaign that devastated the lives of thousands of young men serving under the British Empire. It was a day chosen to begin what had been called ‘The Big Push’, a desperate attempt to overwhelm the German Front Line and bring an end to a two year long stalemate on the Western Front. This authoritative guide gives a factual account of the events leading up to the Somme battle, the battle itself, the politics of the day as well as the experiences of the young men who answered the call to join Kitchener’s Army. With dramatic photographs, maps and diagrams this guide is an informative and sensitive account of the conflict.
