Product description

This short volume forms part of an occasional series entitled 'Military History From Contemporary Sources'. The idea behind the series is to provide the modern reader with a flavour of how these actions were presented to general audiences at the time the events unfolded. This volume is of especial interest as it deals with the German Army on the Somme. The events from the British perspective are well represented in the huge volume of reports and autobiographical accounts, but for English language readers it is much harder to gain an insight into the war as it was experienced from the German side. Gibb's work is welcome therefore as a rare example of a contemporary attempt to view the war from the 'other side of the hill'. Sir Philip Armand Hamilton Gibbs (1st May, 1877 - 10th March, 1962) was an English journalist and novelist who served as one of the five official British reporters during the First World War. These official dispatches all originate from November 1916 and were written following the capture of Beaumont-Hamel by the 51st Highland Division which took place on 13th November 1916.
