With the British Army on the Somme

A rare and vivid account of life on the Battlefields of the Great War, The British Army on the Somme details the experiences of war journalist William Beach Thomas. One of only five men chosen in 1915 to document the war from the Western Front, Thomas was in the terrifying and unique position of supplying the people of England with a glimpse of the Somme.

Whilst working for the Daily Mail, sections of Thomas' reporting featured in the newspaper in 1916. However, those excerpts appearing here have for the most part been rewritten to fill in the gaps left by the war censors during the war. First published in 1917 by Methuen & Co., under the title With the British on the Somme, Thomas' account provides a stark and unwavering account on what was one of humanities bloodiest battles. Moving and intriguing in equal parts, this book is sure to resonate with generations yet to come.
