The Somme: July-November 1916 By Mike Stallard

This is a book mainly, but not exclusively, for those studying GCSE History. I am suggesting that in order to study the First World war, we need to look at the major battle for the English - the... More > turning point. For the French perhaps, it was the Marne or maybe Verdun. The Russians and Germans had their battles too. As did the Turks. But for us, the Somme was the central piece of fighting which we all remember. Before the Somme, Western Europe faced a “normal” war which, in its own way, was gallant, even knightly. After 1916 dragged to an end, warfare became a tug of war over a muddy plain full of unburied corpses and broken bits of machinery. By studying that, we can have a good introduction to the terrible fascination of the years 1914-1918 - nearly 100 years ago now.< Less

Philip Brocklesby came from a religious united middle class family. He was one of four brothers. In spite of the shocking experiences during the war, and many of his friends and colleagues being... More > killed, he managed to keep his mental balance and a sense of humour. He spent 1 year and 10 months in France and participated in the Battle of the Somme from the first attack on 1 July 1916. During this period he narrowly escaped being killed on several occasions, and this was a fact which concerned him all his life, because he tried to find some reason why he should have been saved when so many of his companions had been killed.< Less

More > censorship laws following the conclusion of World War One in 1918, this book is noticeably different from the censored or dumbed-down accounts published under Gibbs' byline in popular newspapers as the conflict wore on. In this book, the full scale of the horror wrought in Europe is told unflinchingly with the aim of showing the depravity of conflict and the destruction that results. Early in the war, Gibbs' frank and accurate accounts of the carnage of modern warfare unnerved the British government, who were concerned his accounts would demoralize citizens and turn them against the war effort. Gibbs was ordered home; on refusing to cease reporting, he was arrested and forcibly brought back to Britain.< Less

Between Heidi and Horror: A Brief Memoir of the Somme By Stewart Hennessey
eBook (ePub): $1.55
Between Heidi and Horror is the autobiographical tale of Brinsley Fox's mysterious desertion from the Battle of the Somme. With admirable candour, Fox writes about precisely how the infamous Battle... More > began, how he tried to prevent it and how he subsequently deserted to escape it. Known in his day as a spy, forger, thief, inveterate gambler and venal libertine, Fox's motives for being at the Battle were always suspect. He signed up to the British Army in 1914 largely because he was being pursued by violent moneylenders and the Crown Prosecution Service. Paradoxically, he was a reputed hero at the Somme. However, in these pages he reveals that to be broadly unjustified. Told with vicious humour, dark fatalism, astute observations and scant regard for moral fibre, Between Heidi and Horror is a compellingly honest and racy tale - albeit from the pen of an unsteady and shameless quitter.< Less
