The bloodiest battle of the First World War saw almost a million men killed. Martin Pegler uses previously unpublished eyewitness accounts and the latest historical and archaeological evidence to challenge the traditional view of the fighting on the Somme as a futile waste. He argues that the improvement in British tactics and weaponry, with particular focus on the innovative use of tanks, would eventually help in the defeat of Germany. Includes full orders of battle.
