A landmark tale of the trenches
A joint operation between Britain and France in 1916, the Battle of the Somme was an attempt to gain territory and dent Germany’s military strength. By the end of the action, very little ground had been won and more than a million lives were lost.
Twelve Days on the Somme is a memoir of the last spell of front-line duty performed by the 2nd Battalion of the West Yorkshire Regiment. Written by Sidney Rogerson, a young officer in B Company, it gives a frank and moving account of what it was really like to fight through one of the most notorious battles of WWI.
First published in 1933, this is a classic work whose reprinting is long overdue. This essential edition includes a foreword by Rogerson’s son, Commander Jeremy Rogerson.
