Besorgung - Lieferbarkeit unbestimmt
BeschreibungPrevious works in this series have concentrated on the 'Pals' in the Northern towns and cities. This book seeks to explore the little appreciated part played in the Battle of the Somme by the Regular and Volunteer Service battalions of two small West Country regiments; the Devonshire Regiment and the Dorset Regiment. These two regiments had five battalions in action on the first day of the battle and were represented in most of the significant attacks during the three and a half months of the 1916 campaign. The reader will be able to form a clear picture of the battle's development as a whole through the eyes of Westcountry soldiers who fought on the Somme.
