By Matthew Richardson

Read the experiences of soldiers from the Battle of the Somme in WWI. 

Matthew Richardson's graphic account, which is based on the vivid personal testimony of those who took part, offers us a direct impression of the reality of the battle from the perspective of the ordinary soldiers and junior officers on the front line.

He draws heavily on previously unpublished personal accounts - letters, diaries, and memoirs, some never before translated into English - to build up a multifaceted picture of the Somme offensive from the first disastrous day of the attack, through the subsequent operations between July and November 1916.
