Flers & Gueudecourt (ePub)
Flers is of course best remembered for the first use of tanks in modern war. But the battles at Flers and Gueudecourt were also memorable as forming part of the last great advance of the British Army in this slogging match that was the Battle of the Somme in 1916.
As ever with this series, engrossing personal stories are intertwined with the wider detail of battle... What is particularly striking about this book is the wonderful aerial photographs of the different areas of the battlefield. Equally, there are amazing photographs of events from the field during this period.Jon Sandison, Freelance
