The Hell They Called High Wood — The Somme 1916 - Terry Norman

William Kimber & Co., 1984, Hardback in Dustwrapper..
Condition: Very Good — in Very Good Dust Wrapper. Gently bruised at the head of the spine and top corners with commensurate ruffling to the dust wrapper. Leans. Text complete, clean and tight.

Illustrated with black and white photographs & maps. From the cover: “The Somme is acknowledged as one of the bloodiest rendezvous for battle this century. What began as attrition, ended in mutual destruction and is now chiefly remembered for its tragic loss of life. Bitterly contested and dominating the Bazentin Ridge, High Wood was a focal point of the battle area. Held by the Germans, High Wood was fiercely defended against infantry, cavalry and tanks — the latter deployed in battle for the first time.”
