There are many accounts of the Battle of the Somme by surviving British soldiers. But the Somme was not a single battle but a series of offensives and small localised attacks fought over four and a half months. What is etched into the British psyche is the huge loss of life suffered by the 'poor bloody infantry' on the first day of the Somme, 1 July 1916. The carnage was such that few survived to tell the tale of that first horrific day and the existing published memoirs are about later in the Battle or by non-infantry troops who while involved in the offensive, didn't actually go 'over the top'. What is also unique about Edward Liveing's vivid and detailed account is that it begins the evening before the attack and ends close to 24 hours later and is entirely focussed on the first day of the Somme. A young junior officer in the London Regiment on the battlefield that infamous day, he was in command of a platoon of about fifty men, when he scaled the crest of his trench into no-mans land. Edward Liveing's account is known and has been quoted from, but unbelievably this is the first time since it's publication in the USA in 1918 that it has been republished in its full, horrific, unexpunged glory. Newly illustrated and endorsed by Lieutenant Liveing's family, 24 Hours on the Somme is the ideal book to commemorate the sacrifice made a century ago this July

Walking into hell : the Somme through British and German eyes by Edward G. D Liveing( )

1 edition published in 2014 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This powerful volume features a vivid description of the action on the first day of the Battle of the Somme as viewed from the British perspective by Edward Liveing, who fought near Gommecourt and left a highly detailed account of the first day of the battle. The British experience is contrasted by a wonderful collection of official war dispatches by Sir Philip Gibbs, which were originally published in 1916, in the pages of the Daily Telegraph and Daily Chronicle. In a rare example of a contemporary attempt to view the war from the 'other side of the hill, ' these dispatches provide a unique insight into the battle from the perspective of the all too often overlooked German Army on the Somme. These accounts have been selected and edited by Emmy Award winning writer and historian Bob Carruthers, who also writes the foreword to this volume"--Publisher description
