about

Few battles in all of world history are as well-known as the Somme—and almost none were as tragically costly. Over 141 days in the summer and fall of 1916, the French and British drove the German lines back six miles, at a combined cost on all sides of more than one million men killed or wounded.
This book presents a highly illustrated day-by-day account of the battle designed to help historians and military history fans alike see and understand how the battle developed and evolved. Fifty full-color maps and a large number of photographs, many previously unpublished, help readers locate key trenches, fortresses, and strongholds, and together with Chris McCarthy's detailed daily narrative, enable us to understand the battle perhaps better than anyone—including its architects—ever has.
 
Chris McCarthy worked as a curator at the Imperial War Museum for decades and is now an honorary research fellow in war studies at the University of Birmingham.
