"The words "The Somme" still embody the absolute horror of war with endless deafening bombardments and a generation of young European men lost on the killing fields of France. And that's years after the campaign began on July 1st, 1916. After the shock of the first day of the Battle of the Somme, with 60,000 allied casualties, we see the terrible price paid in lives for Field Marshall Haig's policy. He threw thousands of his men against the German lines, hoping to overwhelm the company"--Container

Ypres : the salient( Visual )

2 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Straddling the French-Belgian border, this flat, wet and muddy landscape was the scene of three great battles between 1914 and 1917. It culminated - in the final battle known as 'Passchendaele' - in a blood-letting that matched the Somme in desperation and losses. But while the rolling, intimate landscape of the Somme makes it easy to recognise features that would have been familiar to the troops, it's not hard to see why even the men bogged down in fighting around Ypres

World War, 1914-1918. In the carnage of Gallipoli the Allies lost 50,000 killed and gained a tiny foothold which they then abandoned when the 100,000 survivors were evacuated nine months later. The campaign started in Spring 1915, planned by Winston Churchill. The plan foresaw the Royal Navy knocking out the Turkish shore batteries and British, Australian and New Zealand troops landing on the Gallipoli peninsula in what was then the largest ever amphibious assault

"Ypres, a small city in Northern Belgium, became the most fearsome killing ground of World War I. The combat during this engagement was confusing and unrelenting resulting in atrociously high casualty figures from each participating army. It is the village of Passchendaele's bad luck to sit on a barely perceptible ridge in a flat countryside. This makes it the target for both German and Allied troops. The village itself is smashed to smithereens, along with thousands of men"--Container

1 edition published in 2014 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Following on from the success of the two films on Ypres (Slaughter of the Innocents and The Immortal Salient) The Walking the Western Front series turns its attention to the infamous Battle of the Somme, where almost 60,000 British men were either killed, wounded or classed as missing on the first day alone. Spread across three DVDs, acclaimed film-maker Ed Skelding and eminent military historian Nigel Cave take us on a tour of the Somme battlefields as they exist today and explain the Battle of the Somme in its entirety, from the opening day offensive where thousands of troops lost their lives against a determined German defence to the abandonment of the operation on 18 November with the final failed Battle of the Ancre. Whereas the first DVD in the series, The First of July 1916, focused on the opening day of the Somme, this volume covers the direct aftermath of that day and explains the action from that point until the end of August
