The Battle of the Somme, ed. Matthew Strohn.
Looks at the wider issues that surround the battle, from its place in
the British, French and German strategy for 1916 to the long term

gives equal weight to the British, French and German experiences of the
Somme, and helps place the battle in its true context.
