A divisional commander at the beginning of the First World War, Lieutenant General Sir Thomas D'Oyly Snow saw action at Le Cateau, the Marne, Ypres, Arras and Cambrai, before leading the disastrous attack on Gommecourt on the first day of the Battle of the Somme. In this volume of memoirs, he frankly acknowledges the limitations of his own and others' command, while explaining how the totally unprecedented scale of the war made effective communication between officers almost impossible.
