Butte de Warlencourt, Martinpuich and Le Sars

04 April 2022

At last, it's here!

We are delighted that Bob's book in the Battleground Somme series 'The Butte de Warlencourt, Martinpuich and Le Sars' has been published by Pen and Sword. RRP £14.99, 200 pages of goodies and a great easy read containing excellent pictures and maps

We all had hoped that the book would have been published before now however the publishing gods were against this for various reasons obviously including covid.

Apart from covering details about the fighting in these areas in the autumn of 1916, the book is a great guide for visitors and also invaluable for those staying home.

It includes details of two walking tours of the area and a full day car tour which can be easily be split into two. There is also a very nice section on the effect of the 1870/71 war in the area.

A must buy says us on a very biased basis
