Book Description William Heinemann, London, 1917. hardcover, 5" x 7½" (lacks jacket) Includes 16 old black & white photographs, and two-colour fold-out map 'Map of the Somme Battlefield' (approx scale 1000yards = ¾inch). Extract from Masefield's first chapter: "The old front line was the base from which the battle proceeded. It was the starting-place it was the biggest battle in which our people were ever engaged Very many of our people never lived to know the result of even the first day's fighting They never heard the cheer of victory nor looked into an enemy trench All the advantages of position and observation were in the enemy's hands, not in ours. They took up their lines when they were strong and our side weak Almost in every part of this old front our men had to go up hill to attack." The fold-out map shows the moving front line over a four week period, and location of trenches, wire entanglements and craters - the photographs shows to landscape of the battles. The text details the old positions on the Somme before the battle, 1916. Spine cloth grubby. Previous owner's name cut from title page (3" x ½"). Publisher's list at rear turning brown. Top and foredge have minor foxing. Book in GOOD condition 128 pages. Seller Inventory # 39740
