1916: Verdun to the Somme

1916: Verdun to the Somme

This special ebook has been created by historian Saul David from his acclaimed work 100 Days to Victory: How the Great War was Fought and Won, which was described by the Mail on Sunday as ‘Inspired’ and by Charles Spencer as ‘A work of great originality and insight’. Through key dates from the introduction of conscription in Britain on 27 January 1916, to the first day of the Somme on 1 July 1916, Saul David’s gripping narrative is an enthralling tribute to a generation of men and women whose sacrifice should never be forgotten.

Reviews

Original and effective...Professor David exceeds the reader's expectations...one of the best measured accounts.
Times Literary Supplement
A splendid read... a specialist in 19th century colonial wars and a fine writer, David has intelligently boiled down recent scholarship on the war.
The Observer
Saul David has come up with an ingenious approach... The charm of this unorthodox technique becomes clear as soon as you open the book... a remarkable book.
Daily Mail
Splendidly well written - fluent, engaging, well paced and, despite the grim subject matter, often entertaining.
