New Edition of ‘Walking The Somme’

A new, second edition, of my first book Walking The Somme came out a few weeks ago and is now available on Amazon and other good bookshops. This new edition is chunkier than the first, with an extra chapter about Mametz Wood and the text fully revised. There are new illustrations and a colour section with some modern images of the battlefields as they are today.

Walking The Somme was the first ever walking guide to a battlefield of the Great War and from 1997 to this reprint sold a staggering 20,000 copies. It was always nice to see people walking the ground there, copy in hand, and I hope this new edition inspires walkers old and new to the Somme battlefields as we approach the 95th Anniversary of 1st July 1916 – The First Day of the Somme.
