The Somme

I finished Dusty Warriors yesterday and have now moved onto something a little different, although with some similar themes. The book I've chosen to read over the next week or two is Somme by Martin Gilbert, partly as I haven't read any First World War military history titles for a while and partly because it's a topic that I have neglected to study myself.

I've always focussed on the naval and air warfare aspects of the First World War, although I have read quite a lot of autobiographical accounts of the war on the Western Front, so this should fill in some gaps. I'm sure it won't get me sufficiently inspired to attempt gaming trench warfare but I'm sure it will be well worth the time and effort.
