As we all know there are hundreds of books on the Great War, and many about The Somme specifically. These are my favourites. The collection will take time to upload, so this page is a work in progress.
These are in no particular order.
I’ll start with a legend.
The First Day on the Somme (ISBN 0-14-139071-9) Martin Middlebrook.
Then there’s the very fine field companion The Somme Battlefields: A Comprehensive Guide from Crecy to the Two World Wars by Martin and Mary Middlebrook.
The Secret Battle by A.P. Herbert, based largely on the tragic story of Edwin Dyett. (See Edwin Dyett Page)
For God’s Sake Shoot Straight by Leonard Sellers, now republished as Death and Desertion.
