Between July and November 1916, the British Army fought the greatest and bloodiest battle in its 350-year history. In this rigorous analysis of the battle, Michael Chappell examines the contrasting nature of the opposing armies, explains the unique character of Kitchener's 'New Army', describes British infantry tactics, explains in detail the crucial part played by the artillery, and recounts the first appearance of the tank in battle. Fully illustrated with over 100 photos, drawings and maps, and in superb color plates featuring 16 uniformed figures in meticulous detail.
