The Somme Then and Now

£9.99

Product description

Black cloth boards with no corner damage, whole book well hinged & bound. Jacket clean with minor edge shelf wear creases. Lavishly illustrated with b&w plates & maps etc. The author recreates, by means of contemporary photographs juxtaposed with others taken by him over a number of years plus eyewitness accounts and narrative, the atmosphere, past and present, of that once famous salient. He aims to present a moving tribute to the men who fought with great courage and tenacity in the horrendous conditions that prevailed in Flanders during what was known as the Great War. To them "Wipers" was more than just a foreign city, it was a way of life and, for so very many, a way to death.
