This is the latest book in the Battleground Europe series focusing on the Somme sector. Full of stories of both endeavour and heartbreak, it deals with action around the Triple Tambour Mine Craters, Bois Francais, Mansell Copse, Danzig Alley and the approaches to Mametz Wood.

From the outset, a helpful overview is provided of the Somme battlefields, alongside detail of the focussed area alongside the villages of Fricourt and Mametz. The readers gleans important detail on this position, and how the villages of are local on two elevated spurs of higher ground, and therefore the importance of the British attack in this area.
