News from the Fronts: The Kitchener Divisions and the Battle of the Somme

£50.00

From Spring 1916 onwards against the backdrop of the battle of Verdun – ‘the Meatgrinder on the Meuse’- Kitchener’s New Army divisions were arriving in France for the Anglo-French offensive on the River Somme. Hopes were high for a break through the German defences. The course will consider in detail the preparations for the battle and how it developed over the summer months.
