The Somme

Peter Barton’s landmark volume presents over 50 original panoramas of the battlegrounds of the Somme. They show what no other photographs can: the view from the trench parapet, and a great deal more.

This revised edition also includes stunning new details of the use and misuse of an extraordinary network of ‘Russian Saps’ installed during the two months prior to battle. These tunnels beneath no man’s land often brought the British – unseen – to within 10 metres of the German trenches, yet over-secrecy and poor communication led to most being left unexploited. In the sectors where they were employed, success was dramatic.

Plus a host of previously unpublished personal testimony, and a fresh look at several unseen and forgotten aspects of the battle such as the Royal Engineers’ Push Pipes, Bored Mines and huge Livens Flame Projectors. Here is the Somme as you have never seen it before.
